Culture, Diversity, and Multiculturalism 2 Culture, Diversity, and Multiculturalism With the continually expansion of global markets and technology to connect us, it is vital that global leaders understand the differences between their country and the country with which they are dealing. It is a mistake for managers and other global leaders to pretend that business is conducted the same globally, and failure to recognize and embrace diversity and cultural differences represents a substantial hindrance to an organization. To successfully utilize these benefits, management should research the cultures and countries of prospective business relationships to understand their cultural similarities and differences. Successful leaders who embrace their research and understanding of cultural diversity can generate an innovative and empowered workforce. Cultural Intelligence, Multiculturalism, and Diversity Defined Globalization is the goal of most major firms and with that comes the demand for leaders who can bridge the gap between cultures as well as language. Cultural Intelligence Intelligence is typically discussed in terms of intellectual intelligence (IQ) or emotional quotient (EQ), however the increase in globalization has lead to the concept of cultural intelligence (CQ) [For12]. These all measure intelligence differently. IQ measures an individual’s ability to effectively use math and language, EQ is the determining factor for the success of high level organizational leaders, and CQ is used to determine the success of a global leader [For12]. Cultural intelligence highlights the aspects of an interaction particularly associated with culture; which typically does not include the emotional aspects of the interaction (Forsyth, 2015).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
