Cultural Intelligence Makes Diverse Companies Profitable  

Seven Signs Your Organization Lacks Cultural Intelligence

  1. Low employee engagement
  2. Inability to talk and work effectively with people that are different
  3. Lack of innovation or stagnant productivity
  4. Infighting between groups
  5. Inability to reach new markets as U.S. demographics change
  6. Failure to attract or retain diverse talent
  7. Tardiness and high turnover

Does Having Diversity in Your Workplace Feel More Like Drama and Less Like Productivity? In a business world where marketplaces and workforces are becoming more diverse, the traditional mono-culture approach is a drag on productivity and profit; it’s an igniting point for drama. Whether in a marketplace or workforce, diversity is simply a mix of different people, not a catalyst to productivity, unless, your diverse workforce develops Cultural Intelligence.

Why Build Cultural Intelligence?

Companies with the most ethnic diversity on their executive team are 43% more likely to experience higher profitability. (McKinsey & Co., 2017)

In this Introductory Workshop, participants will:

  • Realize the value proposition for diversity and cultural intelligence in an organization
  • Learn the 5 Stages of cultural intelligence to jumpstart safe conversations and reach a broader market
  • Discover how the Stages impact employee and leader engagement for greater productivity and innovation
