Developing cultural intelligence, as well as DEI protocols not only necessitates time and intentionality, but also encourages a willingness to enter into crucial and courageous conversations about oneself and one’s beliefs developed over a lifetime.
Walking Anew, Inc. uses the Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) to aid individuals and groups in further developing Intercultural intelligence or competence, as well as protocols and processes that reflect these values. According to the Intercultural Development Inventory®, Intercultural competence is the capability to accurately understand and adapt behavior to cultural difference and commonality.
While our training, coaching and consulting modules focus on being specific to individual or organizational needs, the Intercultural Development Inventory®, Crucial Conversations® and concepts of the EQ-i 2.0. assessments are a key component of Barbara’s work and process. The IDI, in particular, aids one in understanding the importance of developing intercultural competence, plus it provides individuals, groups and organization’s with language helpful in navigating development.
Developing intercultural competence not only requires assessing one’s current level of cultural intelligence, but it also requires patience. Barbara is a certified executive coach, qualified administrator of the IDI® and is certified as an emotional intelligence specialist (EQ-i 2.0). She, or a member of her team would be responsible for guiding you or your team toward further developing intercultural intelligence as well as DEI protocols for your organization.
Again, cultural beliefs do not develop overnight, therefore, intentionality and a conscious allocation of time are necessary to further develop cultural intelligence.
Barbara would like to aid in developing your executive leaders, staff or team. If you, your ministry, team or organization is in need of more information you may request it below.
