THRF Webinar - Cultural Intelligence
Mon, 18 Oct 2021 - 1:00 PM to 18 Oct 2021 - 2:00 PM
UOWD and The Human Resources Forum are delighted to host Mr Mark Davis, Founder of The Negotiation Initiative (TNI) - the world’s first culturally intelligent negotiation consultancy.
Hosted by the Faculty of Business, this webinar is of interest to all. Mr Davis will be discussing his work in the UK and providing a unique insight into Cultural Intelligence and how it can be used to reduce conflict – a vital area for those of us living in the UAE. He explains:
“Four global mega-trends are influencing business priorities and reshaping the capabilities required of leaders to succeed in the future. With change comes opportunity for growth but also conflict. To maximise on these opportunities and minimise conflict there is one capability proving to be the difference between success and failure: cultural intelligence (CQ). This talk will highlight the trends and be an introductory overview of cultural intelligence. We will take you through a performance model that turns cultural intelligence insight into action plans. Finally we will share some impact studies that confirm CQ’s relevance and ROI capacity.”

Join us at 1pm on Monday 18 October 2021 for the first of our Autumn Trimester sessions.
