Why Diversity, Inclusion & Cross Cultural Collaboration?

All companies face unique business challenges for their workforce to address. Tackling specific diversity and cultural differences as business challenges arise is the most effective way of supporting the cultural growth of an organization. Rather than differences being a ‘problem’, the goal is to be able to leverage these unique dynamics to your organization’s advantage. Employees and managers who are able to communicate and collaborate effectively with their overseas counterparts experience greater trust, stronger relationships, increased efficiency and more reliable results.

They were approachable, listened well, and could easily relate to people with different roles and backgrounds. They really made the class relevant to everyone in the room, and they did a great job of bringing in outside materials and experiences as well as integrating feedback from the students. Nice job!

Our Approach

Our approach to diversity and inclusion focuses on building a solid foundation of empathy, self awareness, and the ability to transform judgment into curiosity. From this shared grounding we guide groups through experiential activities that allow people to explore identity, difference, implicit bias and allyship. Leveraging the uniqueness of each group allows insights to stay relevant and real, while facilitator expertise encourages personal and group accountability. 

We address these issues with the following:

Cross Cultural Collaboration and Connection

Our coaches focus on helping participants communicate effectively with their overseas counterparts. These skills reward participants with greater trust, stronger relationships, increased communication efficiency and better collaborative results.

Diversity and Inclusion

Learn to become aware of and successfully resolve disagreements with their counterparts from other countries and cultures. Our coaches also address the need to get everyone’s voice in the room and the challenges of meeting participation where not everyone speaks the same language, as well as how to give feedback or hold someone accountable when they’re thousands of miles and many time zones away.
