Chapter 20: More Star Performers > EQ and Aboriginal Culture

EQ and Aboriginal Culture

The cultural adaptation of emotional intelligence is still a topic of great interest. Having given presentations throughout North America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia, it has been gratifying to see how well the topic has fit so many cultures. One fascinating example has been the work one of us (Steven) has done in Thompson, Manitoba, with the Burntwood Regional Health Authority. Responsible for health care throughout northern Manitoba up to Hudson Bay, this organization services large groups of First Nations Cree and Métis indigenous to that region.

Karen McClelland, former president of the Regional Health Authority, has a strong commitment to serving the First Nations people in a culturally sensitive way. All new staff (including Steven) are required to undergo an intensive two-day Northern Cultures course so that employees can become attuned to the special needs and cultural issues of this northern part of Canada.
