Executive Cultural Coaching


To understand culture, you have to look inside yourself. This is sometimes difficult to do in a group session, coaching offered me time to focus on what I needed, rather than a group situation.”

Executive Cultural Coaching supports the ongoing growth of current and potential leaders in the development of their cultural intelligence.  Cultural Intelligence can be the difference between a good domestic leader and an effective global leader.
