We are pleased to write the foreword to David Livermore’s latest book on cultural intelligence (CQ). We have known Dave professionally for many years and have followed his work with great interest. Dave has always had a passion for intercultural training and education and has spent several years training leaders to serve on short-term overseas assignments.
As academic professors who pioneered the research and basic science of cultural intelligence in organizational behavior and cross-cultural psychology, we were introduced to Dave by a mutual colleague. The colleague thought our academic research on cultural intelligence could influence Dave’s work in the field and Dave’s vast intercultural experiences could help us refine our own thinking about cultural intelligence.
Few people can translate technical academic work into clear and lucid material. Dave has done just that with this book on culturally intelligent leadership. Dave is especially qualified to write this book. He has a Ph.D. in the field of education, with special emphasis on multicultural education. He understands the importance of evidence-based management principles and emphasizes researchbased scientific evidence rather than anecdotes as the basis for his key points. As a result, Leading with Cultural Intelligence presents a view of leadership that is solidly grounded on cultural intelligence theory and research. By drawing on key concepts and ideas that have been well validated academically, Dave accurately brings alive the concept of cultural intelligence and applies it with highly practical how-to’s for global businesses and practitioners.
The book is easy to read and highly relevant for today’s managers and global leaders who must grapple with the complexities of cultural differences. Dave uses rich and vivid real-life examples throughout all chapters in the book.

this “cyber warfare stuff.” It seems that the new...
