when you need a win at the intersection of leadership and culture
At some point, every leader wanting to make a difference in the world discovers a gap in their intercultural leadership skills. We provide coaching, city analyses, online courses, and white papers to fill that gap.
We help in three ways:
1. Perspectives: Why does a pro-tennis player need a coach? Perspective from outside of the court that can help them see what they can't and prepare accordingly. Sometimes, it's not the cultural challenge the leader is facing, but how they see that challenge in order to address it.
2. Insight. Insight is defined as "the capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing." Insight comes by seeing beyond the surface to the roots of a cultural trend, challenge, or opportunity.
3. Tools. Tools is all about having the right skill to solve a specific problem. For example, if there's a lack in vision + strategy, then the leader requires the skill to know how to craft vision + strategy.
Noted anthropologist Paul G. Hiebert defines culture as, “the integrated system of learned patterns of behavior, ideas, and products characteristic of a society.” Leaders today are not only embedded in culture, but influence culture. We help the leader focus on developing intercultural perspectives, insights and tools through coaching, city analyses, online courses, and white papers.
We focus on four areas:
1. How leaders lead themselves
2. How leaders lead in their churches
3. How leaders lead their cities
4. How leaders lead in global trends
