IN THIS SUMMARY

In today’s hypercompetitive economy, success depends on the ability to function effectively in culturally diverse situations. Traditionally a person’s IQ, or cognitive intelligence, was considered a critical predictor of top performance. But in a globalized world, leaders also need a high level of CQ, or cultural intelligence. Individuals with high CQ appreciate both the similarities and differences among people. Instead of feeling threatened by differences, they find ways to learn from them. In unfamiliar cultural settings, they are able to analyze what is happening, adjust their behavior, and overcome the challenges that arise from multicultural work. In The Cultural Intelligence Difference, global consultant and trainer David Livermore offers a guide to assessing CQ, and a set of proven, practical techniques readers can use to boost their cultural capabilities.
