Online training and coaching
for leaders and members of intercultural teams
Increase your intercultural effectiveness
Appreciate different patterns of behaviour
People have a tendency to take their own cultural pattern as the norm and expect others to behave in a similar way. If they don’t, we tend to find this frustrating, strange, irritating. To be effective across cultures, make an effort to postpone judgment and look at others from an appreciative point of view.
My name is Danaë Huijser. I am a business psychologist, specialised in intercultural organisational behaviour. I have 15 years of experience as a trainer and coach in multinationals as lead consultant and owner of CMC, Culture & Management Consulting. Caleidoscope Academy is our online brand, offering e-learning and virtual coaching to complement our in-company training and consulting projects.
Caleidoscope Academy aims to increase the effectiveness of team members and leaders in an intercultural context. We do this by helping you to recognise and understand cultural patterns, both in yourself and in others. Once we learn that our way is not the one and only, we can start to appreciate differences and learn from others.
How aware are you of the influence of cultural patterns at work? Do you know how cultural patterns affect trust building, cooperation, communication and leadership? Test your cultural intelligence and find out how culturally savvy you already are.
