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

They are many different types of culture. These include occupational, organizational, age and even gender. However, one of the most prominent types is national culture. That is the norms, behaviors, beliefs, attitudes, customs, and values that exist within the population of a country.

Cultural differences in communication can also cause significant problems. Million-dollar business deals can be lost, international negotiations can fail, and workplace problems can intensify. This exciting but practical training course is run as a masterclass in all aspects of culture and how you can thrive in a multi-cultural world.
