The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) is a 50-item psychometric instrument that is arguably the most scientifically rigorous and statistically validated tool available for assessing and building intercultural competence. The model behind it explores why some people are more effective navigating and bridging cultures than others. The tool is unique in how it quantifies the subjective ‘experience’ of cultural differences and provides a snapshot of the developmental process involved in building intercultural competence (the skill needed to be inclusive and overcome biases) over time.
LCW provides both individual and group IDI® coaching to help individuals and teams discover blind spots related to unconscious bias. This experience helps everyone plan for their own development, set better goals, take necessary actions, make decisions with more insight, and more fully use their natural strengths in intercultural settings.
IDI® Coaching Programs
In addition to individual IDI® Assessments and debriefs, organizations often choose to add a group dialogue around the strengths and opportunities presented by collective IDI® results according to function, team, etc. LCW can conduct these group IDI® debriefs as standalone sessions or as part of larger facilitated workshops to maximize group learning and development.
For senior leaders, ERG leaders, and other key stakeholders, we offer individual IDI® debriefs and coaching. This highly specialized approach to leadership development has helped leaders and high-potential employees all over the world develop the intercultural competence needed to confidently hire, manage, and lead inclusively.
Individual IDI® debriefs effectively help individual contributors interpret their assessment results. With the aid of an IDI®-certified coach, individuals discusses concrete and practical ways to develop their intercultural competence and receive resources that enrich their cross-cultural understanding across the Intercultural Development Continuum.
