經由來自國內外131位外國專業人員的工作經驗調查中發現,具有較高文化智商者能夠更高度展現其創新行為。相對應地,擁有較高的後設認知文化智商、 認知文化智商和動機文化智商者,將引發更多知識分享行為。而知識分享也對創新行為有正面影響。除此之外,透過知識分享的中介效果,在認知文化智商對於創新行為的關係上有顯著影響。
Nowadays, human resource management transforms the business into globalization, and globalization trend changes the management of human resource as well. Therefore, given the importance for enterprises to figure out the factors to cultivate competitive advantages among foreign professionals in a cross-cultural working environment and improve the innovation process and work performance in advance, this research will discuss how cultural intelligence and knowledge sharing impact individuals’ innovative behavior.

Consequently, from an empirical investigation with 131 foreign professionals supported the notion that with higher cultural intelligence perceived higher innovative behavior. Correspondingly, higher metacognitive CQ, motivational CQ and motivational CQ lead to higher knowledge sharing. In addition, knowledge sharing has positive impact on innovative behavior. Furthermore, the relationships between cognitive CQ and innovative behavior were mediated through knowledge sharing.
