You've heard of IQ and EQ, but what about CQ?

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) refers to our ability to function effectively across national, ethnic, and even organizational cultural boundaries. Cultural Intelligence involves four interdependent capabilities: Knowledge, Motivation, Interpretation, and Behavior.

Improving our CQ makes us better communicators and more gracious actors in our increasingly diverse world. Through this highly interactive conversation, sample what CQ has to offer and learn tools you can apply immediately as you cross cultural boundaries.
