Viviane Vicente, founder of Rispetto Consulting, has earned the globally recognized and academically validated “Cultural Intelligence (CQ) Certification”.  At Rispetto Consulting®, we believe that Cultural Intelligence is more than just a “nice-to-have”:  it is often the difference between success and failure.  Viviane’s CQ Certification will allow us to offer the CQ Assessments and the “Developing Cultural Intelligence” workshop for our clients.

What is Cultural Intelligence (CQ)?

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations.  In today’s globalized, multicultural world, it is important that organizations identify individuals who can successfully and respectfully accomplish their objectives in multiple cultural contexts.  Beyond cultural awareness and sensitivity, Cultural Intelligence will promote effectiveness for individuals and teams working across different cultures, even within the same geographic region when diversity is at play.

The Benefits of Cultural Intelligence (CQ):

Research demonstrates that diverse organizations applying Cultural Intelligence far outperform homogeneous teams. An individual’s CQ predicts performance when working in culturally diverse situations. Organizational CQ predicts results when working across cultural borders and increases the likelihood the organization will successfully accomplish its mission in this globalized and multicultural world.  Increased diversity in organizations and the need to promote inclusion and efficiency among teams make CQ indispensable to businesses, nonprofit organizations and universities around the globe.

Whether you are a small, mid-size, or large organization, we will work with you to equip your leaders, staff and other stakeholders to simultaneously advance the values and needs of your teams and customers while adapting to the cultures touched by your work. Research proves that Cultural Intelligence is the deciding factor for whether cultural differences promote or hinder innovation and growth.  At Rispetto Consulting®, we provide customized learning solutions to meet your organizational needs.
