Advance Praise for Driven by Difference

“In a globalized world, the importance of cultural intelligence is increasingly evident. This book provides a compelling and refreshingly practical account of how and when to use CQ to drive higher levels of innovation performance.”— Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

“Livermore makes a strong, science-based case for why diversity and cultural intel-ligence matter more than you think. Rooted in research and amplified with power-ful case studies and examples, this book is an essential read for those hoping to leverage an increasingly diverse workforce to drive innovation.” — Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive

“This book is a must-read for any leader wishing to develop more culturally inno-vative teams and organizations. Dr. Livermore’s in-depth research provides the missing link to diversity efforts that are not being fully leveraged.”— Andrea Kelton-Harris, Sr. Diversity Leader, Harvard University

“The futurist Marshall McLuhan was right—‘we now live in a global village.’ But few companies are able to embrace this complexity to create new value through innovation. Filled with numerous examples and straight talk on how to drive ‘culturally intelligent innovation,’ Driven by Difference should be mandatory reading for your entire team.”— David Butler, Vice President of Innovation, Coca-Cola

“Despite the increasing prevalence of diverse teams, the value and possibilities of that diversity are often squandered. That result is no longer inevitable. Driven by Difference presents an intriguing, compelling, and thought-provoking approach to unleashing the creative and innovative potential of diverse teams.”— Anthony Mayo, Director of Leadership Initiative, Harvard Business School

“For more than two decades, there has been a discussion of the link between diversity and innovation. This book succeeds at advancing our knowledge of this link by providing the frameworks and practices that guide us to think and act culturally intelligent as we leverage diversity to innovate.” — Lynn Wooten, Ph.D., Associate Dean, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan

“Through concrete research and real-life examples from across the globe, David Livermore’s new book shows us how diversity can be consciously linked to innovation.”— Anindita Banerjee, Ph.D., Renaissance Strategic Consultants, India
