What’s Your CQ? Cultural Intelligence and Cultural Competence

Our local communities are becoming more global through technology and demographic changes. The organizations we work in are “internationalizing”, employees are geographically dispersed, from different countries, different cultures. The workplace requires individuals to be aware of different cultures, to interact with people from different cultures, and to interpret new culture as they are encountered.  The changing workforce and societal demographics have changed the learning demands for leaders today.  Harvard Business Review recently devoted a “Spotlight Series” on The New Global Leader; highlighting the critical skills necessary for success in the global workplace. Cultural competence is essential for success.  With these changing cultural and demographic trends, how do we understand our own cultural identity to effective in our leadership? This workshop will explore key elements of cultural intelligence and practices for cultural competence.

Learning Objectives

1.        Examine the trends that are driving the need for greater cultural intelligence

2.        Define culture, cultural intelligence and map personal cultural identity

3.        Explore cultural values orientations in five frameworks (goals, communication, time, decision making, risk)

This session will begin with an overview of trends in the workplace that are driving the need for greater cultural intelligence and cultural competency.  Before an organization can effectively develop strategies for appealing to and retaining diverse talent, it needs to examine its own cultural awareness, which starts at the personal level.  Participants will map their own cultural identity and explore the cultural values orientations of various cultures to gain greater awareness of how to adjust behavior to interact with various cultures.
