"Working cross-culturally" course
Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is key in establishing positive work relationships, collaborating in teams, assisting staff and supervising students across cultures. A lack of CQ can lead to low performance, conflicts, frustration and mistrust in culturally diverse groups. While basic social skills and respect for other cultures can be enough, cultural intelligence is especially important in stressful situations.
