Episode Summary

How Culturally Intelligent are you and why should you care about developing a cultural mindset? To stay on the leading edge in our complex, interconnected world and diverse workforce. “CQ (cultural intelligence) is a critical capability for navigating today’s increasingly global and diverse business environment. It’s so important that we made it one of our core behaviors at PwC.” —Robert Mortiz, Chair Price Waterhouse Coopers, United States, with “Ninety percent of leading executives from 68 countries identify intercultural skills as among the most important capabilities required to remain competitive,” as reported by Ang, Van Dyne, & Rockstuhl. “It is impossible to not work interculturally!” Marilyn O’Hearne says, even in your own community and organization, when you consider gender, generation, ethnicity, region, sexual orientation, religion, ability/disability, etc. It’s easy to be afraid of crossing the line, and challenging to know what the line is. Don’t end up either doubting yourself or blindly forging ahead, overconfidently believing you “have arrived” because you have taken a training, or traveled, or have some intercultural experience. You can increase your impact and prosperity as you commit to further developing your cultural mindset, with a little guidance. Join Marilyn and us for discovering 4 keys to developing your crucial for success cultural mindset.
