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.
