Discover how Cultural Intelligence can help improve teamwork and communication in this online workshop.

This workshop will introduce Scholars to the concept of ‘Cultural Intelligence’ (CQ) and how it can be used practically as a tool by for working in new environments and teams.

The workshop will cover different examples of Cultural Intelligence and how to apply it to different settings. Scholars will learn about how Cultural Intelligence affects interactions with others and strategies for managing their own Cultural Intelligence on a personal and professional level.

Scholars will get the opportunity to work on their own personal communication style and also explore ways that they can use Cultural Intelligence for getting along in a specific UK context.

This virtual session will be highly interactive and give Scholars ample opportunity to discuss their ideas in breakout rooms throughout the session and also during Q&A towards the end of the workshop.
