We will introduce a new training program for developing cultural intelligence. The program was designed and pilot tested with two groups: International MBA students from a University in California and HR professionals from a company in Saskatchewan. We will begin by addressing the program’s rationale and uniqueness regarding content and pedagogical approach. We will then discuss the four cultural intelligence capabilities and how they can be developed with a combination of knowledge and experiential activities. We will conclude by presenting survey results that showed higher scores in cultural intelligence, resilience and innovative behavior among individuals that participated in the study.
