Cultural Intelligence – Learning from Mongolian Nomadic Tradition with Saranzaya Manalsuren
In the 13th century Chinggis Khaan, the leader of steppe, founded the ‘Great Mongolian State’ by forging the largest contiguous empire in the history of the world, stretching from Korea to present-day Poland. The empire led great economic, political and cultural transformation across Asia and Europe, from the establishment of the world’s best transportation system at the time, to the standardised use of paper money and coins.
Under his reign, almost all popular religions from Buddhism to Eastern Christianity, Manichaeism to Islam lived peacefully alongside one another. Evidently, there must be some lessons to learn from those nomadic leaders about working and communicating effectively across diverse cultures. In this session, we explore the concept of Cultural Intelligence (CQ), and learn how nomads utilised it, in order to enhance our insight, and to work effectively with diversity.
