A proven way to measure cultural intelligence (CQ), with strategies for pushing your score and effectiveness higher!

Global interconnectivity and the growing diversity of the workplace has led to a multibillion-dollar industry of diversity training and international management courses. Yet 90 percent of executives from 68 countries identify cross-cultural effectiveness as their top management challenge. The ability to understand different perspectives and adjust behaviors accordingly can be the deciding factor in whether teams work cohesively, deals are closed, and projects thrive—and it can make or break a career. A new approach is needed.

Now, David Livermore, an expert on cultural intelligence (CQ) who has authored multiple books and is a frequent adviser to government agencies and Fortune 500s, shows you how to tap into the power of CQ with a proven way to assess and improve the way you manage, negotiate, network, and more in any kind of environment. The book delivers the nuanced and insightful information you need to build the deep cultural intelligence required to really thrive in our multicultural workplaces and globalized world.

Gain the proven benefits of the CQ difference—and give yourself a crucial advantage in today’s crowded job market and hypercompetitive workplace.
