The IPI analyzes ten dimensions from the International Competency Framework. In addition, it examines a ‘Push’ style and ‘Pull’ style for someone to successfully operate in unfamiliar cultural settings.
‘Push’ is a strong, assertive style with a focus on taking some risks to deliver on commitments.
‘Pull’ is a flexible style with a focus on adapting to different cultural ways of behaving.
It is essential that these two styles coincide with one another to reach a favourable outcome.
For it to reach its full potential, feedback on the tool is given in a workshop or training session within a group of people. Peer reflection and support can provide the most meaningful impact.
“The IPI helped me think more deeply about the competencies I need to work better with my international colleagues. It’s helped me identify which areas I want to develop on more.”
