Normative Commitment – the obligation an individual feels to staying with the organization. Continuance Commitment – an individual’s calculation to stay with the organization based on the perceived costs of leaving the organization. Employee Engagement – an individual’s involvement with, satisfaction with, and enthusiasm for the work he or she does. Cultural Intelligence – the ability to understand someone’s unfamiliar and ambiguous gestures in the same way as would people from that person’s culture. Most managers fall into the following cultural intelligence profiles: Provincial – they work best with people of similar background, but have difficulties working with those from different backgrounds. Analyst – they analyze a foreign culture’s rules and expectations to figure out how to interact with others. Natural – they use intuition rather than systematic study to understand those from other cultural backgrounds.

    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.
