Cultural Intelligence Course Singapore

The way people around the world think and behave is guided by a complex and integrated system of values, attitudes and beliefs, loosely defined as culture. Cultural intelligence (CQ)  is the capability to function in culturally-diverse situations and the ability to deal with people from different cultural backgrounds and perspectives. The global marketplace presents multicultural challenges and a diverse workforce is now a norm in many dynamic organisations. Those who can lead with cultural intelligence and who can work effectively across cultural divides are in demand worldwide, regardless of industry and geography. Our cultural intelligence courses in Singapore will help you to achieve these critical capabilities. 

Cultural intelligence (CQ) is a malleable competence and can be increased through training, coaching and structured exposure.
