Traditional coaching vs. cross-cultural coaching

Traditional coaching usually operates within the cultural lens of the world. Cross-cultural coaching challenges those cultural assumptions and opens up new perspectives and knowledge beyond previous limitations to help clients discover creative solutions that lie “outside the box”.

While traditional coaching is about helping people to unleash their potential, cross-cultural coaching taps into various world views and expands the options available in any situation.

Why is cross-cultural identity and sensitivity important to be successful globally and locally?

For today’s global businesses, managers and leaders must raise their awareness of cross-cultural competence through coaching. Excellent leaders must be able to work with the cultural differences between individuals, as a part of their leadership role.

Developing cross-cultural identity enables management to:

  • be inspirational and deliver results in multi-national corporations
  • be confident and thrive in multi-national meetings and negotiations
  • successfully work with and through people from diverse backgrounds in a harmonious fashion.
  • have successful business trips to different countries

“By integrating the cultural dimension, coaching will unleash more human potential to achieve meaningful objectives and enriched with coaching, intercultural professionals will be better equipped to fulfill their commitment to extend people’s world views, bridge cultural gaps, and enable successful work across cultures.” Rosinski 2003

The essence of cross-cultural identity

In a nutshell, cross-cultural identity is the integration of your individual identity, your local social identity, and your global cultural identity.

It is about moving from “I” to “We”.
