Building Cultural Intelligence(CQ): Nine Megaskills

Building Cultural Intelligence is a must read for any course that emphasizes cultural awareness and understanding, human interaction, and cultural communication among diverse populations.  This practical, engaging, and interactive text promotes critical thinking and skills development.

 

Bucher presents cultural intelligence as a skill we can learn, develop, and manage.  He focuses on nine specific megaskills readers can use at work, home, and abroad to promote cross-cultural understanding.  Each chapter offers a number of diverse learning aids, including self-assessments.  Each megaskill supplies building blocks through specific competencies.  These nine megaskills are:

  • Understanding cultural identity
  • Checking cultural lenses
  • Global conciousness
  • Shifting perspectives
  • Intercultural communication
  • Managing cross-cultural conflict
  • Multicultural teaming
  • Managing bias
  • Understanding the dynamics of power

Research and theory are discussed throughout, specifically with regard to culture and its impact on who we are, how we view ourselves and others, and how we relate in a variety of ways.  The relevance to employment and career goals, focus on critically important skills, and inclusiveness are all strengths of this text that will give students the edge in any environment.  

 

Readers become "CEO's" of their CQ skill development rather than relying on others to take the initiative.  It explores bottom line relevance, real-life applications, and moves beyond awareness so the learner becomes more "intelligent" in terms of developing the ability to adjust to cultural differences. 

Synopsis:

This engaging, interactive book is best suited for any course that emphasizes cultural awareness and understanding, human interaction and cultural communication among diverse populations (i.e. business management, customer service, health care, human service), and the development of specific skills necessary to relate to others effectively (i.e. global consciousness, teamwork, conflict management, shifting perspectives). The focus of the courses this book best suits range from general (i.e. cultural diversity, human relations, freshman seminar/orientation, counseling, communications, sociology, psychology, business, health and human services, theology, education, management) to more specific (hospitality management, racial and ethnic relations, customer service, culturally competent health care, managing diversity, teaching diverse populations). BUilding CQ has been used successfully in workforce training programs, faculty and staff development activities and programs, and mini-courses or workshops dealing with professional development. Because of its readability and self-directed learning approach, ideal for online courses.
