Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the ability to cope with national, corporate and vocational cultures as described by Christopher Earley and Elaine Mosakowski in HBR of October 2004. CQ is the ability to make sense of unfamiliar contexts and then blend in. They describe three sources of Cultural Intelligence: a) The Head / Cognitive (rote learning about the beliefs, customs, and taboos of foreign cultures, the approach corporate training programs tend to favor, will never prepare a person for every situation that arises, nor will it prevent terrible gaffes) b) The Body / Physical (you will not disarm your foreign hosts, guests, or colleagues simply by showing you understand their culture; your actions and demeanor must prove that you have already to some extent entered their world), and c) The Heart / Emotional/motivational (Adapting to a new culture involves overcoming obstacles and setbacks. People can do that only if they believe in their own efficacy). While it shares many of the properties of emotional intelligence, Cultural Intelligence goes one step further by equipping a person to distinguish behaviors produced by the culture in question from behaviors that are peculiar to particular individuals and those found in all human beings. Why is Cultural Intelligence important? In an increasingly diverse business environment, managers must be able to navigate through the thicket of habits, gestures, and assumptions that define their coworkers differences. Foreign cultures are everywhere in other countries, certainly, but also in corporations, vocations, and egions. Interacting with individuals within them demands perceptiveness and adaptability. And the people who have those traits in abundance aren t necessarily the ones who enjoy the greatest social success in familiar settings. The people who are socially the most successful among their peers often have the greatest difficulty making sense of, and then being accepted by, cultural stranger
