Cultural Intelligence: How to Thrive in a Global Society
In an increasingly globalized society, it is more important than ever to be adaptable, agile and accepting. IQ and EQ are well understood measures that have proven to be important to success. However, many people are unaware of the potential of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) in helping people (and companies) to thrive. How do we predict and deal with cultural differences during business meetings? Why does it matter whether our supervisor is Chinese, Japanese or German? What skills enable us to build stronger international relations? This talk will cover the meaning of CQ, the schools of thought on how to define it, and direct ways to improve your CQ.
