Cultural intelligence is the ability to:
- Assess the ways people in one country commonly interact. What is their common norms and belief system.
- Determine how the ways in which people from a specific country interact differ from the ways in which people interact in your home country
- Successfully manage an unsettling or unfamiliar situation encountered in a foreign country
Strengthen your Culture quotient (CQ) to collaborate more effectively with people from other countries with different background and belief system. Given the number of cross-border teams, overseas visits, and global employers many corporate managers are likely to experience in their careers, having high CQ is an inherent advantage.
