Introduction: The main purpose of the current investigation is to survey the relationship between cultural intelligence and efficiency of the primary school managers in Isfahan. This study is an applied research that was implemented through correlation method. Materials and Methods: The statistical community of this research is consisted of 176 primary school managers in region 3 and 5 of Isfahan among whom 121 people are chosen by multilevel clustering method as the sample group. The measurement tools of this study include standard questionnaire of cultural intelligence by Early and Ang (2003) and inventory achievement efficiency model by Hersey and Goldsmith (1980). The Validity of the content was confirmed by some professors at the department of educational science. Results: Using Cronbach α. reliability was estimated at%7 for cultural intelligence and%74 for efficiency. For data analysis of the research, multivariable regression t and correlation tests have been used and generally revealed a meaningful relationship between the managers' cultural intelligence and efficiency. Among the components of cultural intelligence, there is a perfect relationship between the cognitive, motivational and behavioral elements and the managers' efficiency. Conclusions: There is no linkage between the strategy of cultural intelligence and efficiency. Also, based on demographic properties involving age, gender and education, there isn't a meaningful difference among the managers' efficiency. Given that a considerable part of skills and cultural intelligence capacities are acquired, the Isfahan education office center should consider a specific plan to promote cultural intelligence, and try to improve this through formal and informal trainings.
