Why should I attend CQ Celebration 2022?

Cultural intelligence [CQ] is the capability of an individual or group to adapt and operate effectively in a diverse range of cultural contexts. These include national, ethnic, organizational, generational and departmental (Ang & Lee, 2003).

In our working lives, developing our cultural intelligence capability improves how effectively we are able to work with and relate to people who are different from us. It’s a soft skill that is crucial for leaders and managers working in cross-cultural contexts in order to be able to communicate effectively in their roles. (Nosratabadi et al., 2019).

Like IQ [Intelligence Quotient], CQ can be measured AND improved.

CQ builds on your EQ [Emotional Quotient] to further enlighten, equip and empower your appreciation of the widest range of possibilities between the universal and the idiosyncratic.

CQ is literally your capability to understand and interact with people from different cultures or beliefs systems

CQ is your ability to utilise ever expanding information to adapt and function effectively in a range of culturally diverse contexts (Ang and Van Dyne 2008).

CQ activates all your senses to perceive how personalities you engage with are different from your culture, and the similarities that they may share with one another (Earley and Mosakowski, 2004).

CQ is the missing link, the secret sauce and our fundamental human instinct in building a bridge across any empathy gap.

CQ is the key to greater inclusion and a path to positive cultural change.

CQ is a journey to a better you!
