Currently, the world is undergoing transition due to the presence of number of forces in the business environment. The challenge is to map these changes and integrate the same with the performance. Leader cultural intelligence (CQ) enables an organization to increase its cultural competence and harness diversity at the workplace, which is considered to be a key driver for innovation. Culture is learned. It is through this learning potential and process that leaders can cultivate this new domain of intelligence known as CQ, which has immense relevance and effects upon an increasingly global and diverse workplace. Nurturing the capability to learn, adjust, and adapt helps raise the level of cultural intelligence. Cultural intelligence can be understood as the capability to relate and work effectively across cultures.
Some studies have been done but still there is a wide scope of conducting research in niche areas. Lot of research papers have been studied for it and the gaps have been found which will be talked about by the authors in the paper. This shall help us to find how CQ is related to team performance in different contexts.
