What Is Cultural Intelligence?
Most people have heard of IQ (intelligence quotient) and EQ (emotional quotient), but what is CQ? CQ – which stands for “cultural intelligence” or “cultural quotient” – refers to one’s ability to relate to others and work effectively in culturally diverse situations. People with high cultural intelligence are skilled at communicating with people from different cultures.
In business, this ability can make or break an important trade deal. It can also help nonprofit managers overcome obstacles that might impede an organization’s mission in a certain region. Being able to effectively collaborate with people from a variety of cultures is a skill that is highly prized in today’s global economy – and developing your cultural intelligence can help you turn what were once obstacles into assets.
