Cultural Intelligence is a globally recognised way of assessing and improving effectiveness for culturally diverse situations in mission, ministry and the workplace. It’s rooted in rigorous, academic research conducted by scholars around the world.

Leading organisations in faith, education, government and workplaces are adopting CQ as a key component in spiritual leadership and personnel development.

Participants will be expected to take an online self-assessment survey several weeks before the workshop, with the survey link being sent to you once you have registered.
