Hi! I am Viva Liban and I am all about CQ.. What is CQ? Cultural Intelligence or CQ, is the capability to relate and work effectively across cultures. And I have had the privilege of living in several countries including Saudi Arabia, Canada, France, Lebanon and Kuwait. Does that make me culturally intelligent? I will let you decide. What I can tell you is that I love this stuff. On many occasions, being culturally apt has created a key that unlocked possibilities across cultural dynamics that weren’t there before. And it isn’t limited to people of different cultures in the classic sense of the word. We’re talking about office and company cultures, gender cultures, religion cultures, generation cultures, geography cultures, ethnicity cultures… it’s a long list. And it’s different than emotional intelligence though that’s important too.

The Cultural Intelligence Center certified me and several other professionals globally to be CQ trainers.  Since then, I have been hooked. I post everything to do with CQ and some. Maybe you will find some inspiration from these posts.
