Understanding and Addressing Micro Behaviors

As companies become more diverse, challenges arise from subtle micro-behaviors that can lead to misunderstandings, fatigue, and fear. Without awareness, workplace belonging is impossible. Our training equips participants with language and skills to tackle these problems, enabling them to diffuse potential micro-behaviors and have productive conversations. With an action plan to integrate these skills into daily life, participants can help create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace for all.

Cultural Intelligence

The workplace is rapidly changing due to global marketplace shifts, allowing organizations to expand their search for talent internationally and increase remote work opportunities. However, with diverse cultures come challenges that can impact productivity, employee engagement, and even brand reputation. Our Cultural Intelligence training, utilizing the International Conflict Style Inventory® (ICS®) and the Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) frameworks, helps organizations navigate these challenges by deepening their understanding of their own cultural conflict style and organizational culture.
