Me2We InterCultural Fitness
Working in a culturally diverse group (e.g., multicultural team) or setting (e.g., expatriation) presents many challenges, and it demands adjustments in leadership and communication style. If leaders adjust their behaviors to fit in, they may experience a feeling of in-authenticity and fatigue in sustaining those behaviors. On the other hand, if they resist adjusting, this may impact their performance and satisfaction and that of the people around them.
We help leaders foster mutual understanding, grow healthy relationships, and maximize impact on groups, teams, and organizations. They develop into more conscious individuals able to make meaningful adjustments in culturally diverse contexts, now and in the future. They learn skills for life.
We use a scientifically researched Model of Intercultural Competence to facilitate awareness and develop emotionally intelligent behaviors and attitudes.
Throughout the program, we work with each individual or group on:
Intercultural Sensitivity: the ability to uncover cultural bias, challenge assumptions, and re-interpret situations and people’s behaviors.
Intercultural competence: the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to expertly lead multicultural teams, work collaboratively and communicate effectively across cultures. We develop Intercultural Competence through the enhancement of the individual’s Emotional Intelligence.
Leverage complexity: develop the mindset to deal with the uncomfortable and unexpected, and use cultural complexity as a source to broaden perspectives, work creatively, and nurture innovation.
The program is always tailored to the client’s real case and needs, and it may include:
Individuals or group coaching
Assessments: Intercultural Readiness and Emotional Intelligence EQ-i 2.0
Asynchronous learning activities and resources.
