The Complete Course in Cultural Intelligence (CI)

Developing Your Cultural Intelligence (CI)
& Leading in a Global Organisation

Communicate, Negotiate and Work Effectively

Why Choose this Training Course?

In our diverse workplace being able to work effectively across cultural divides is an essential skill for any Leader, Manager or Professional. Cultural Intelligence (CI) is the capability to relate and work effectively across cultures. Culture is one of the key competencies in fields ranging from leadership and management, engineering, and finance, to accounting and marketing. The higher your CI, the more likely you will experience success working in a diverse, globalized world.

There are many different types of culture. These include national, regional, religious, occupational, organisational, age, gender. However, one of the most prominent types is national culture.

Cultural differences in communication can cause significant problems. Million-dollar business deals can be lost, international negotiations can fail, and workplace problems can intensify.
