Embodying a culturally intelligent coaching mindset requires coaches to remain aware of and open to the influence of culture on self and others, but what does that look like – particularly in cross-cultural coaching partnership?
As we understand the cultural context of our clients, we strengthen the coaching relationship as we foster more trust and safety - allowing clients to express concerns, thoughts and beliefs about sensitive issues such as cultural authenticity, bias, and inequality.
During this session, we will learn how coaches of all backgrounds can create greater awareness with their clients by deepening our listening for what may be unsaid about cultural influences and how they are showing up in the client’s professional life
. • Culturally Intelligent Coaching brings to the practice of executive coaching an understanding of how culture is formed, and influences are beliefs, actions and results
. • Culturally Intelligent Coaching provides leaders the opportunity to align their unique cultural context and experiences with current and future goals. This safe space allows leaders to achieve greater levels of congruency and capacity in their careers.
• Culturally Intelligent Coaching mitigates performance and leadership gaps, creates a deeper level of satisfaction with work and life, and enables leaders to achieve and sustain more effective contributions to the organization.
Through Culturally Intelligent Coaching, we can help people achieve a more authentic leadership approach that empowers leaders to leverage, rather than dismiss, their unique perspectives and background.
