Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A Correlational Study of the Relationship between Cultural Intelligence and Behavioral Style
by Turner, Mark R., Ph.D., Dallas Baptist University, 2020, 161; 27838275
Abstract (Summary)

The current study incorporated a quantitative non-experimental approach that examined the relationships between Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and natural behavioral styles. A purposive sample of members of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) was used. Participants were asked to take the CQ assessment, which measured their level of CQ in CQ Drive, CQ Knowledge, CQ Strategy, and CQ Action. The second assessment utilized the DISC Behavioral assessment instrument, which was utilized to determine the participant's natural behavioral style. The findings revealed a weak to moderate relationship between variables of CQ Drive, CQ Knowledge, and CQ Action with the DISC variables of Influence and Conscientiousness while indicating no statistically significant relationship between the other variables. Simple linear and multiple regression showed that there are variables of CQ that are valid predictors of variables of DISC and vice versa. These regression findings did indicate that the more variables that were known contributed to higher abilities to predict other variables. The results showed that future studies that expand the relationship between CQ and behavioral style beyond the population of CHIME are warranted.
