Today, companies need to develop leaders who can work effectively in a variety of cultural environments and with a culturally broad range of colleagues, partners, and other stakeholders. For any international talent development process, key questions will be: How do you recognize a good international manager? How do you develop sound international talent?
ICM’s Cultural Bridging Skills© (CBS) provide the methods that enable leaders and managers to communicate and work effectively across cultural borders. Cultural Bridging Skills© are grouped around three skill sets:
- Adapting to culturally different environments and feeling comfortable with differences;
- Establishing interactions that promote trust with people from different cultural backgrounds and creating a strong sense of belonging and engagement;
- Enabling people from different cultural backgrounds to work together effectively and harmoniously, and to perform together.
Our Cultural Bridging Skills© questionnaire allows individuals to evaluate their level of competence in this area and plan strategies to develop greater ease and effectiveness in an international and multicultural professional environment.
