The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI®)
The IDI® is a 50-question online assessment that enables an employee to discover their own level of intercultural competence. An interculturally competent person knows how to discern differences in their own culture as well as in other cultures. They possess the ability to effectively bridge cultural differences. This leads to effectively communicating, engaging, and inspiring people of all races, ethnicities, backgrounds, genders, mental and physical abilities, and many more identities. As a skill, intercultural competence enables the development of mutually adaptive solutions that take various world views into account.
Many organizations want to improve on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), but don’t know how or where to start. Together, we build a strategy for transformational change as DEIB requires intentionality and a clear plan. IC Edge works with organizations at all levels – strategizing with leaders, boards of directors, DEI councils, and other parts of an organization – to achieve the organization’s goals.
Education is at the core of what do and can be broken out into four areas.
To combat diversity misconceptions (what we call diversity clutter), one-on-one coaching has become vital. Our experienced coaches work with all levels, from individuals to leadership to executives.
With coaching, we help you develop as an inclusive leader to:
- build your confidence in engaging across cultures, both internally and externally
- lead a diverse team to higher levels of belonging
- eliminate unwittingly offending others
- have your words match your heart
We tailor your coaching sessions to fit your needs. Coaching sessions are 1-2 hours and spread across several months based upon your schedule.
A diversity presentation is often essential to creating awareness of the benefits of DEIB, especially at the beginning of a journey. We are here to help. We deliver customized presentations that motivate and inspire engagement in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
