Overview: There is no tool, no advice helpful in equipping you to navigate cross cultural communication situations, if barriers are present. The first steps to developing cultural intelligence (CQ) are to first acknowledge that barriers are present, then to identify them, both the conscious and unconscious ones, and thirdly to work on overcoming the barriers. Join our conversation as we tackle all three.
- Define cultural intelligence.
- Identify the value of developing cultural intelligence.
