A Favorite Book: ‘Building Cultural Intelligence (CQ): 9 Megaskills’ by Richard D. Bucher

Bucher presents cultural intelligence as a skill we can learn, develop, and manage.  He focuses on nine specific megaskills readers can use at work, home, and abroad to promote cross-cultural understanding.  Each chapter offers a number of diverse learning aids, including self-assessments.  Each megaskill supplies building blocks through specific competencies.  These nine megaskills are:

  • Understanding cultural identity
  • Checking cultural lenses
  • Global conciousness
  • Shifting perspectives
  • Intercultural communication
  • Managing cross-cultural conflict
  • Multicultural teaming
  • Managing bias
  • Understanding the dynamics of power
