MODULE 4

Cultural Theory & Intelligence - "The psychological impact of relocation"

Intercultural competence is an essential skill for any relocation professional and this module examines the long established research and the new. The central pillars of intercultural theory are a great place to start your learning in this field but we take a more holistic and subjective approach, looking at an integrated, personal skills based model. The module examines the CQ (Cultural Quotient or Intelligence) philosophy and looks at how practice and learning can be highly effective ways of becoming intercultural competent.
