Leaders’ guide to the new frontier: the multicultural office of 2013

Share Article

FIGevents launches a series of 2-day executive training courses on Leadership and Cultural Intelligence, providing business leaders with a holistic understanding of CQ, or cultural quotient.

Starting in May 2013, FIGevents, provider of summits and training for business, will host a series of executive training on leadership and cultural intelligence in Europe and the Middle East. Initial locations will include Berlin, Doha, Dubai, London, Stockholm and Zurich. The courses are aimed at senior and middle management as well as aspiring future leaders.

With role plays and practical interactions, the two-day workshops will help participants boost their cross-cultural skills needed for working with other businesses and within their own. They will learn clearly and systematically about cultural differences and how they affect behaviour in business and all walks of life.

In an unprecedented move in the sector, FIGevents introduces dynamic pricing for delegate registration. Substantially reduced prices will be offered for early registration and the prices will increase reacting to demand.

The series will begin with a course entitled "Introduction to Cultural Intelligence: Leaders’ CQ strategy in a multicultural world". This will be run by Dr Connson Locke, Lecturer in Management at London School of Economics.

Dr Locke commented: “Most people know about emotional intelligence (EQ), but cultural intelligence (CQ) is different. As we conduct more research on CQ, we are beginning to see just how critical it is to being successful in a multicultural world. Remaining ignorant about CQ will soon become a major disadvantage in international business.”
