Whilst IQ, and more recently EQ, were once regarded as the highest and most sought after qualities of leaders in western organisations, future leaders will be selected and judged by their levels of “CQ” i.e “Cultural Intelligence”, including their ability and aptitude for managing teams from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, overseeing cross-cultural communications, and handling cross-border negotiations and transactions. Very few of these skills are taught in western educational institutions and much of this has to be learnt from experience, trial and error, and listening to those who have done it all before.
Examples of keynote topics:
- Three Cups of Tea – a 3 step process to building trusted relationships in Asia
- From IQ to EQ to CQ – why all leaders need to develop ‘Cultural Intelligence’ (CQ)
- The Cultural Mirror – practical steps to cross-cultural communications, negotiation and transactions
