Seven Signs an Organization Lacks Cultural Intelligence

In our current environment, it’s impossible to have a workforce that isn’t diverse. Diversity can either work for or against you. Without cultural intelligence, diverse perspectives work against an organization, increasing defensiveness, stereotypes and stonewalling.

Employees and organizations:

  1. Exclude colleagues and clients with words and actions
  2. Stifle conversation because unable to appreciate different perspectives
  3. Fighting between groups or departments
  4. Have low employee engagement, innovation and risk-taking
  5. Have tardiness and high turnover
  6. Fail to attract, retain & promote diverse talent
  7. Unable to reach and relate to new markets
