Most cultural conflicts arise because we interpret other people’s
behaviour and appearance the wrong way. We can only change that if we
develop a higher level of Cultural Intelligence, which is the purpose of
this intensive course module.!
Cultural Intelligence is firstly the ability understand and accept that our differences in cultural preferences lead to different behaviours and different value systems. Secondly Cultural Intelligence is the ability to leverage from that diversity instead of ending up in a conflict. This course module covers the first part.!
Topics covered in Introduction to Cultural Intelligence
• There is more than one right way to do things.
• The layers of Culture.

Developing Cultural Intelligence is like climbing a ladder; the higher you get the more you can see and the more you will understand.!
