PMI Nashville March 2018 luncheon – Cultural Intelligence

March 20, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

About Event:

Cultural Intelligence: A key skill for Success – Diversity is becoming the norm in everyday life. Introducing global delivery models without a proper understanding of intercultural differences leads to numerous areas of difficulty, frustration, and reduced productivity. In this diverse world, we need teams who can cross these imaginary boundaries, people who can communicate effectively, and to build diverse networks necessary to avoid problems. Learning about Cultural Intelligence (CI) – the ability to relate and work effectively across cultures – and Cultural Quotient (CQ) – the cognitive, motivational, and behavioral capacities to understand and respond to beliefs, values, attitudes and behaviors of individuals and groups- can help you build behavioral capacities that aid motivation, behavior, and productivity in teams as well as individuals. Learn how to build more culturally intelligent place with tools and techniques from “Leading with Cultural Intelligence” by David Livermore, as well as content from the Hofstede cultural model. In addition, we discuss some real life experiences to illustrate the model and demonstrate how we adapted in common circumstances.
