Proven and Practical Results
While challenging, it is possible to grow and develop cultural intelligence. It begins with awareness of one's own value system and motivations; followed by linking these to knowledge, skills, and experience which provide a lens of understanding. We offer effective intercultural learning workshops that can be customized to meet your personal and organizational needs. These trainings can be provided in English or Spanish.
Intercultural Skills Assessment Services
We offer various research-based assessments that are most effectively paired with training and coaching to achieve maximum growth and impact. While it is possible to develop cultural intelligence, it requires commitment, intentionality, and planning. These assessments can be widely applied and provide the platform for personalized development when linked with a growth plan.
Consulting and Coaching
When paired with assessment and training, follow-up coaching has been found to maximize the implementation of personal growth plans and action steps.
We have consulted on a wide range of issues for both individuals and organizations. Dealing with bias, intercultural differences, and unspoken expectations, can create conflict, stress, and uncertainty. CEOs, HR Managers, teachers, medical personnel, and other leaders will all benefit from the capacity to make appropriate and insightful decisions. Multiple studies show a direct impact on ROI when companies prioritize the development of intercultural skills and understanding. There are times when it is beneficial to have someone to help plan a way through challenges and identify how to leverage diversity towards a healthier and more productive future.
