Move beyond Cultural Awareness. Thrive through Cultural Intelligence


Culture matters! Understanding and learning to bridge and leverage cultural differences will propel your enterprise: educational, business or humanitarian. Using the tools of Cultural Intelligence (CQ), you will learn to effectively communicate with co-workers, clients, and effectively engage those of other cultures in our neighbourhoods.

Today, being culturally intelligent has never been more critical. Our tools will move you from challenge to impact. CQ builds trust, clear communication, innovation and efficient decision making.
