Cultural Intelligence: “Smarts” in Today’s Global World

As the world becomes more multicultural, research has shown that “cultural intelligence”—being aware of and learning about the cultural elements of colleagues—is essential to the success of business. As a cultural anthropologist with many years of experience in leading multicultural groups, as well as in cross-cultural training, Dr. Walkup has a wealth of examples to bring to this growing area of business knowledge.  Offered also as an option, participants are invited to join their instructor after each class at a local (inexpensive) international restaurant—going Dutch!
