Proceedings of the INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE, 2017, vol. 11, issue 1, 802-811
Due to the fact that the world’s economy is an uncontested reality, the interest of studying interpersonal relations between employees coming from different cultures is constantly increasing. In this context, „the Cultural Intelligence” (Earley & Ang, 2003) enjoys an increased attention in special literature. This article analysis the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) concept and highlights it’s role on human behavior within an organization whose members come from different cultures. This article is based on a critical analysis of the special literature, highlighting the particular features of CQ, the differences between CQ and other forms of intelligence (social and emotional) and the effects that a high level of CQ has at individual and group level. The study's findings present and propose new directions of research on cultural intelligence, the most important aspect being the biunivocal link between the Cultural Intelligence and the ability of communication, the relationship between them being direct and extremely strong, intensifying each other.
