    Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is key in establishing positive work relationships, collaborating in teams, assisting staff and supervising students across cultures. A lack of CQ can lead to low performance, conflicts, frustration and mistrust in culturally diverse groups. While basic social skills and respect for other cultures can be enough, cultural intelligence is especially important in stressful situations.

    1. Its benefits are reflected in your work performance;
    2. Diverse teams with high cultural intelligence will outperform homogeneous teams;
    3. Cultural intelligent individuals can effectively adapt to various culturally diverse situations;
    4. Without it, mutual distrust can set in, language barriers can grow more divisive, and different people in the group may bring disparate approaches to conflict;
    5. While basic social skills and respect for other cultures can be enough, cultural intelligence is especially important in stressful situations (conflict management).
