A workshop to build cultural competence personally and professionally!

TIFFIN UNIVERSITY, Tiffin, OH— Tiffin University’s President Dr. Lillian Schumacher, and Provost & Chief Academic Officer Dr. Peter Holbrook will present a workshop entitled “Developing Cultural Intelligence” on June 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Marion Center.

By definition, Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the capability to function effectively across various cultural contexts that are national, ethnic, organizational, and generational. The seminar will discuss how CQ is used in leadership development programs; recruiting, hiring and promotion; mergers and acquisitions; project team management; diversity and inclusion programs; and improved customer service and marketing.

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit, 90 percent of leading executives from 68 countries said finding effective cross-cultural personnel is a top management challenge. “Diverse teams can make or break innovation in the business world,” said Dr. Lillian Schumacher. “With this workshop, individuals can learn to build cultural competence within themselves and their organization. Now is the time to discover your global potential.”

“CQ is paramount for every innovative business. Individuals will take their learning back to their organization to improve cross-cultural adjustment, personal well-being, job performance, and profitability,” Dr. Peter Holbrook said.

The cost for the seminar is $500 per person or $350 per person for a group of three or more individuals from one organization. Six hours of Continuing Education Units (CEU) is available for TU credit, as well as assessments and additional resources.
