After you have read the article, complete the following:
Identify the definition of cross-cultural competence proposed by the authors as it applies to international business. Evaluate their proposed model for understanding how cross-cultural competence is nurtured in individuals, and describe how they link their definition to the concept of cultural intelligence. After evaluating the model, present justifications or rebuttals for its applicability to managing human resources, including identification of its strengths and weaknesses. Your investigation should include a thorough review of the subject in the University of Liverpool's online library and also consider applicability across cultures as well as within a multicultural workplace.
