Definitions of Intelligence
Intelligence is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge.
Intelligence is the capacity for self-awareness, empathy, insights, understanding, emotional knowledge, logic, reasoning, critical thinking, creativity, discovery and problem solving, as well as the ability to apply, grow, and manage these capacities.
Intelligence is the capacity to process data, perceive or infer information, and turn them into knowledge, as well as the ability to apply this knowledge to adapt thinking, behaviors, strategies and actions within an environment or contest.
The Power of Intelligence
Intelligence gives you cognitive abilities to learn, understand, form concepts, and reason, including the capacities to recognize patterns, invent, create, discover, plan, solve problems, innovate, communicate, persuade and influence others.
For instance, social intelligence gives you cognitive ability to understand the social cues and motivations of others and yourself in social situations. It helps you to make correct judgments of others as well as to develop positive social character.
Intelligence vs. Learning
Learning refers to the act of acquiring and retaining information or abilities and being able to recall them for future use. Intelligence is a cognitive ability to perform these and other processes.

Carl von Clausewitz quotes

Boldness governed by superior intellect is the mark of a hero.

Sadhguru inspirational quotes

The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering. Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life.






Cross-Cultural Competency

A globally connected world is a key driver of structural change for the global workforce.

The diversity of stakeholders is an important point to consider. Employee, customers, partners, competitors are all made up of people of different ethnical backgrounds, who have different views, perceptions, beliefs, and values.

Innovation became a systemic phenomenon. It is achieved through synergizing diversities and is increasingly more dependent on the collaboration between actors from different cultural backgrounds who combine their own perceptions, thinking habits and expertise to create something new. This happens on all levels − individual, team, institutional. Diversity of thought increases creativity and, with it, the innovation potential of individuals, teams, corporations and joint ventures.

Business activities that take place abroad emphasize the importance of cultural intelligence and effective cross-cultural communication between the business and local people. Unless company representatives have good understanding of the local traditions and values, they might behave in such a way that is considered offensive or inappropriate in another culture and facilitate conflict, putting the whole local business at risk. In order to effectively perform business activities in a different cultural setting, company representatives must possess such soft skills, as sociocultural competence and empathy.
