Working effectively with others.

In an organisational context, culture includes differences in degrees of:

  • Distance between more powerful and less powerful individuals.
  • Individualism.
  • Tolerance for uncertainty.
  • Longer-term or shorter-term perspectives.

Culturally intelligent people have greater:

  • Awareness of cultural differences.
  • Capacity to change their behaviour to accommodate cultural difference.
  • Motivation to change their behaviour in the light of knowledge of cultural differences.
  • Conceptual ability to make sense of culturally diverse contexts.

Cross-cultural coaching aims to support clients to become more culturally intelligent.
