An online questionnaire and feedback report for use in workshops/training room. Measures 10 critical dimensions from the International Competency Framework. Full supporting materials. Available in English and Mandarin (Chinese)
The International Preferences Indicator (IPI) first establishes an individual’s preferences in an internationally diverse setting, next it produces effective strategies for the individual to best be positioned to succeed in that unfamiliar environment.
The IPI analyses 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.
