In this episode, Jordan and Philippe discuss:

  • The six perspectives of global coaching

  • The Cultural Orientation Framework assessment

  • The three levels of DEI

  • Abrasive leadership perceptions across cultures

Key Takeaways

  • Global coaching refers to addressing today’s complex challenges using six perspectives: psychological, commercial, political, managerial, spiritual, and physical.

  • Levels of DEI: 1) Making sure that people who look different are treated fairly. 2) Helping people see the benefits of each other’s cognitive differences, 3) People’s hidden diversity.

  • The Cultural Orientations Framework Assessment: More than stereotyping nationalities, you have to understand the range of differences: generational, professional, organizational structures, ways of managing time etc.

  • The risk of being misunderstood applies to everybody. You have to be aware that your message and behavior can be perceived differently than you intend.

  • Be sincere, express your genuine respect for the other person, and have a learner’s mindset when it comes to engaging with other cultures.

“You want to make sure that in an organization, everybody can feel welcome, that you want to combat prejudice, discrimination, promote equal opportunity for everyone… it's not just a matter of doing the right thing. It's also not just a matter of ethics, it's also good business practice” — Philippe Rosinski
