2022 Business Classic Award
The winner of the 2022 Business Classic Award is the OER Textbook, Leading with Cultural Intelligence, by Mai Moua, Leadership Paradigms, Inc. The Peer Reviewers had this to say about the book: The focus in this e-book is on leadership and management, and the focus is to help readers apply cultural intelligence to any cultural situation. This is not an academic book, but it is based on Peter Drucker’s concept that we are in an “age of social transformation,” this requires us to reflect differently about how we resolve intercultural and social conflicts and the implications of our actions. A model of cultural intelligence based on research is presented.
