Professional Development Training

Journey to Cultural Intelligence

Course Code: AMS2008

Journey to Cultural Intelligence explores the impact of functioning effectively in a multi-cultural setting as an essential part of your leadership and DEI toolbox. This course focuses on developing Cultural Intelligence (CQ), resulting in more effective communication across distributed teams, culturally divergent cohorts, and community constituent groups. The course is built on the foundation of diversity and inclusion but takes participants a step further, by exploring tools and techniques to bridge gaps between cultures and the behavioral, professional, and personal differences that impact cross-functional exchanges. Participants will embark on a “journey” to learn and explore themselves, along with their counterparts, through the lens of CQ.
