Seven Symptoms

To hire and retain top diverse talent, reach a broader market, and experience greater productivity and profit, an organization needs Intercultural Competence. We know there is a lack of intercultural proficiency when the company is experiencing:

  1. Low employee engagement;
  2. Inability to work effectively with people that are different;
  3. Lack of innovation or stagnant productivity;
  4. Infighting between groups;
  5. Inability to reach new markets as U.S. demographics change;
  6. Failure to attract or retain diverse talent; or
  7. Tardiness and high turnover

To accelerate the speed at which people and their companies adopt a cross-cultural mindset and decrease disruption in the corporate environment, employees need to navigate new kinds of relationships and set in motion a culture of safety and belonging.
