Cultural Intelligence

Our working environments are more diverse than ever before, whether we are working in our home country or abroad. To be successful in this environment, employees need to understand their personal cultural values and how they contrast with those around them. Previously, organisations have focussed on understanding the do’s and don’ts of working in each country – but this approach only results in stereotyping. The approach we take at Pearn Kandola is different. We skill people up to understand their personal cultural values, to recognise how cultural values vary around the world – and how they can best flex their style to achieve the best outcome. This is true “Cultural Intelligence”. It enables employees to be successful when dealing with a range of different cultures and working in a variety of different countries.

Our Cultural Intelligence workshops typically consist of:
  • Understanding personal cultural values
  • Understanding how values vary around the world
  • When and how to flex style
  • Tools to develop cultural intelligence
