Session length: 90 minutes
As coaches, we cannot expect to be fully neutral. However, we can become aware of our inevitable cultural biases (which affect the way we communicate, deal with power and responsibility, view time, organize ourselves, think, manage boundaries, etc.). We can then learn to go beyond our current cultural limitations by overcoming limiting norms, values and fundamental beliefs.
We don’t necessarily need to give up our cultural orientations. Rather, we can enrich these by leveraging cultural differences of all kinds for increased creativity, fulfilment and success!
In this interactive session, Philippe Rosinski, who is widely considered as the pioneer of intercultural coaching, will give you an opportunity to identify your own cultural norms, values and fundamental beliefs that could prevent you from resolving your complex challenges in a satisfactory and lasting manner.
He will share the latest development with the Cultural Orientations Framework, which is a roadmap designed to help you navigate the cultural terrain.
Culture here consists of all the characteristics we have acquired along the way, by interacting with various groups of people, by being part of different cultural groups such as our family, our generation, our profession, our company, our country, our religion (or lack thereof), etc.
Culture is about nurture (i.e., what we have learned) just as personality (in Carl Jung’s view) is about nature (i.e., what we are born with). In this session, you will discover how to systematically integrate nature and nurture in your coaching.

Building high-performance teams represents a formidable challenge, even when the group is relatively homogeneous and physically together. As if that were not hard enough, coaching teams today usually involves two additional factors of complexity: cultural diversity and geographic dispersion. Learning to integrate a cultural perspective is therefore essential for coaching teams effectively.
In this interactive session, you will learn how to coach intercultural teams to
• Foster creativity and leverage diverse viewpoints to address complex business challenges.
• Enhance team members’ ability to work together (including cross-culturally and remotely).
Furthermore, you will discover typical cultural orientations shared by professional coaches and how to overcome pitfalls related to our collective biases (the way we communicate, deal with power and responsibility, view time, organize ourselves, think, manage boundaries, etc.).
Philippe will be available to share lessons from his 25 years of executive and team executive coaching experience across the globe, and his pioneering work of “coaching across cultures”.
