Pre-conference 9.7: Cultural Intelligence: Ability to Adapt to New Cultural Setting

As the information profession operates in an ever changing, global environment, we need to be prepared to handle any diverse situation. As our workforces become more diverse, we face an even greater challenge and problem: that is how to successfully manage increasingly diverse interactions. To address this concern, organizations are applying the framework of cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence is a person’s capability for successful adaptation to new cultural settings, that is, for unfamiliar settings attributable to cultural context (Earley & Ang). This session will discuss an overview of cultural intelligence (CQ) and its application within the information profession; specifically look at its application to change. Cultural intelligence allows information professionals to reinvent themselves by understanding their CQ, and applying differing techniques within the workplace when involved with culturally diverse situations and confronted with change.
