Cultural Intelligence: Improving Your CQ to Engage Our Multicultural World (Youth, Family, and Culture) by David A. Livermore and Chap Clark (Feb 1, 2009)
Twenty-first-century society is diverse, and Christians must be able to understand other cultures and communicate effectively between and among them. This new addition to the Youth, Family, and Culture series explores the much-needed skill of Cultural Intelligence (CQ), the ability to work effectively across national, ethnic, and even organizational cultures. While rooted in sound, scholarly research, Cultural Intelligence is highly practical and accessible to general readers. It will benefit students as well as guide ministry leaders interested in increasing their cultural awareness and sensitivity. Packed with assessment tools, simulations, case studies, and exercises, Cultural Intelligence will help transform individuals and organizations into effective intercultural communicators of the gospel.
