JCU Success Workshop (Do you have what it takes to be culturally intelligent (CI)?)

When: 5 August 2022, 3pm -- 4pm
Location:Online Webinar


Is having IQ (Intellectual Quotient) not enough? Why do I need to be culturally intelligent (CI)?  How relevant is this domain or skill set in the 21st century working environment? In this discussion forum, let’s bring our experiences together to contemplate on this emotional quotient (EQ) that will enable us to be effective employees and manage the new world of work. This has implications for enhancing our human and leadership skills and management practices. In navigating the following areas, we hope to learn what it takes to be culturally intelligent in an increasingly complex, uncertain global environment:

1. Can cultural competence be learned/acquired or is it inherited?
2. How can I develop cultural readiness to be multi-cultural effective?
3. What attitudes, skills, and knowledge set make for a culturally competent person?
4. What are some strategies for effective cross-cultural communication within the workplace?
