Increase your intercultural effectiveness
Recognising and understanding cultural patterns of behaviour is key when working in an intercultural setting. Every cultural pattern serves a need for making sense of the world. No one pattern is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. There is no universal best way, but there is a way that works best for you.
Recognising and understanding cultural patterns is a cognitive exercise, but becoming effective in an intercultural environment takes practice too. You have to be able and willing to see beyond the self-evidence of your own behaviour, and learn to vary in your expression of behaviour, depending on what the situations requires. You will have to leave your comfort zone in order to broaden your behavioural repertoire.
Coaching can help you do just that.
