Cultural Intelligence

Building Global People Skills for Work

Handling Cultural Diversity in a Borderless World

What is the difference between corporations that succeed in today’s culturally diverse environment and those that fail?

As the world becomes borderless, consumer diversity and workplace diversity are becoming a common feature at work.


The success of a corporation depends on its ability to function effectively in different cultural contexts. 


This ability to develop global people skills is called Cultural Intelligence or Cultural Quotient (CQ).


If you want to know what water is, don’t ask the fish.” - Old Chinese Proverb


A fish has no means to convey what it takes for granted. In the same way, you cannot appreciate cultural differences in an environment that you take for granted This is where we come in.


Our CQ facilitators, staff from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Singapore, comprise people from diverse cultures, with different experiences and training backgrounds. And that’s what makes us unique, and also that’s what makes our courses and workshops different.

When it comes to working in ​culturally diverse situations, where do you stand?​

Starting off (Beginner)

You are unaware of the challenges in a culturally diverse workplace.


Getting There (Intermediate)

You plan for cross-cultural interactions to obtain optimum outcomes.


Arrived (Competent)

You adapt seamlessly in any cultural situation

With the appropriate training and coaching, we believe that anyone can develop global people skills and gain a high Cultural Quotient (CQ), moving from Beginner to Competent. The trainers have an underpinning of cross-cultural theories but make the theories real by adapting the terminology to a business language. Our cross-cultural training is anchored in the day-to-day experiences of the participants.
