Cultural intelligence (CQ) is “the capability to relate and work effectively across cultures and diversity”. It measures how we behave in diverse situations.
Our world is shrinking. Fifty years ago most of us lived in a community with people who looked like us, talked like us, believed like us, and behaved the same as us. This is no longer true. Very few of us are not touched daily by differences in others. We live with diversity surrounding us in a global society. In the modern world successful people also need to work with people who are not like them, people from different backgrounds, age, race, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, physical or mental abilities, religion, political views, national origin, appearance, sector, job or education. They need CQ.
