Research Interests

  • n-Culturals
    Research on individual adjustment to cultures, n-Culturals, multicultural individuals, development of multi-method assessment on n-Culturals, including acculturation. n-Culturals are individuals who are capable of creatively synthesizing all facets of their multiple identities. They have knowledge, identification, internalization and commitment to all the cultures they have an affinity to, and recognition that these elements exist within them. This perspective is novel and differs from previous views of multiculturalism. This view enables us to map multiculturals along the multiculturalism continuum and provides us with a way to help people to progress in their multiculturalism.
  • Cultural Intelligence
    Influence of Culture(s) on Individuals; development of a multi-method assessment tool for cultural intelligence aimed at assessing cultural metacognition.
  • International Management/International Organisational Behaviour
    Career Development for Racial and Ethnic Minorities; Conflict and trust; Corporate Governance & Ethics; Family Business Networks; Work Values; Organisational Communication; Organizational Attribution; Servant Leadership.

Research Impacts

As a spin-off of our Cultural Intelligence (CQ) project, the team has developed a Centre for Global Workforce Strategy. The aim of the centre is to carry out multidisciplinary research on issues surrounding effective workforce management strategies in today’s global workforce environment. The goal is to work closely with industry partners and leading researchers to develop effective workforce management and further scholarly pursuits.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) committed cash contributions with the hope that they will take part in future and training activity resulting from our research activity. Although this is a future outcome, the project will make a significant contribution to the RCMP’s workforce and management policies.

The CQ project have been used to develop training programs for many government agencies in Canada including:

  • The RCMP, for example, RCMP has consulted with the CQ team regarding their approach to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
  • l The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
  • l The Correctional Services of Canada.
  • l Currently, CQ is presented as the core concepts for the development of multicultural competencies by Human Factors AS Norway (a consultant for major multinational firms worldwide).
