Cultural Intelligence

Cultural Intelligence by P Christopher Earley and Elaine Mosakowski in Harvard Business Review 

“I came to see, in my time at IBM, that culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, it is the game. In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.”

Lou Gerstner former CEO of IBM

Easily organizations can lose a lot of dynamism trying to address multicultural issues. Even the definition of the issue might be daunting. To define the objective that will lead the company to success is even more difficult. Some questions are constantly raised. Does the company need to become global ? Is it possible to become global and remain innovative ? Can we keep a sense of multiculturalism while working effectively ? How do we communicate in a multicultural environment?

At novarecum, we think there is not one answer to those questions. That’s why we focus on cultural intelligence so that our client can adapt to define the best strategy and to be flexible enough to reinvent themselves and their organization as needed.

Individually, we accompany leader to develop their cultural intelligence. We define a development plan according to their needs.

For the organization we usually offer a twofold intervention. We prepare ad hoc seminars to create or increase awareness towards the organization and we coach teams and leaders who are key to the cultural development within the organization.

Speaking about culture, we might need to use several languages. We have a full range of services in French and English, and we are very experienced with Japanese clients and other nationalities.

Nevertheless if you wish to be coached in another language we’ll be happy to refer to one of our partner coaches.
