Building a Culturally Intelligent Organization; How to Raise Your cultural IQ

A recent study shows that the number one predictor of business success is having a high level of cultural intelligence or CQ. Cultural Intelligence is the capacity to work effectively with people from any cultural group different than one's own (even from different organizations and work functions.)

In other words, someone with a high cultural IQ can be dropped into a culture they know nothing about, and they will be able to observe, empathize and be flexible enough to form relationships with people despite not speaking a word of their language or knowing anything about their organization.

Cultural Intelligence is a skill and anyone can learn it. Everyone in your organization needs to raise their “cultural IQ” in order to work better together, benefit from diversity and be seen as leaders in the global business environment.

When people in organizations or institutions develop a high level of cultural intelligence, they have the skills they need to ask the right questions, give the right answers, and work with people who are from a mixture of different groups in terms of ethnicity, race, age, religion, economic background, sexual orientation, industry or work function.

If you want your employees and your organization to remain relevant, competitive and attract and retain top talent, a high level of cultural intelligence can be the game changer.

This program is designed to create an awareness and understanding of cultural intelligence in order for individuals and organizations increase business success and work and do business with anyone, anywhere.
