Understand geopolitics and security

From a geopolitical perspective, South Korea is located in Northeast Asia, a region from which almost all security tension in East Asia emerges.

It is often said that the territorial disputes between Tokyo and Beijing have reached a ‘boiling point.’ Also, the persistent security threats posed by North Korea’s nuclear weapons and long-range missiles cannot be taken lightly.

Course in Cultural Intelligence

Bermuda College
Online Campus Full time Part time 2 - 6 days November 2018 Bermuda Hamilton + 2 more

Bermuda College now posits an additional factor. Our research identifies the intercultural perspective as another important factor to consider when managing change in today’s workplace environment: Environmental, Political, Intercultural, Sociological, Technological, Legal, Economic. Hence, the acronym that heralds our Trademark Programme is EPISTLE™. [+]

How our program differs…

Historically, Workplace Diversity programmes have focused on building awareness of and appreciation for differences in race, ethnic origin, gender, and religious preference. Beyond awareness and appreciation is the need for skill-building in intercultural relations.

Our research identifies the intercultural perspective to be, perhaps, the most important factor to consider when managing relationships in today’s global workplace.

Our research builds upon the foundations laid by CQ Pioneers Earley, Ang, & Tan (2006), Bucher (2008), and Livermore (2011). To that research, Ridley-Smith (2015), has described the dynamic, iterative model of interchange that should exist between newcomers and their host culture members. This intercultural exchange is so powerful that, when used, it all but guarantees a mutually beneficial and rewarding CQ exchange and organizational outcomes. However, when any of the iterative components are missing, both entities will experience the result of low CQ and diminished organizational effectiveness. As such, this course promotes a symbiotic (SYM-Q™) approach to intercultural relations. The SYM-B™ inventory assesses which among the five focus areas are the strongest and weakest. Our training programmes, consultancies, and coaching will help you to chart a course that will increase your organizational CQ. Members of your organization will conclude, "CQ is for us!"... [-]
