Culture and cultural differences have a greater influence on business effectiveness than we think and it is therefore important for companies to develop the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) of their employees. As organizations become more global, mergers and strategic alliances become more common, developing the skills to get the best from different cultures becomes a necessity rather than an option.

Innovation, knowledge sharing and creative problem solving demand collaboration across boundaries of different professions, job functions and organizations, and these activities depend on peopleโ€™s ability to work with other people who think and act differently from themselves.

During this session, we will talk about how bridging the differences can be achieved through culture management, leadership development and diversity management.
