How to become better at working internationally

The International Profiler (TIP) will help you to build better working relationships with international colleagues and stakeholders from different national and cultural backgrounds.

People who complete the International Profiler (TIP™) process will become more self-aware and will be able to adopt behavioural strategies appropriate for the particular intercultural context that they are working in. It is a personal development process, based on a psychometric questionnaire resulting in a detailed personal feedback report. The development process also includes a feedback session from a WorldWork certified coach. If you  would like to use TIP you can become certified and gain access to all the materials you will need and guidance on how to interpret individual results.

Why are international skills important?

In the modern world of work many jobs require important and regular contact with colleagues, customers and suppliers from a range of different national and cultural backgrounds.  To perform effectively, therefore, many people need to  quickly establish inclusive and productive relationships with diverse people. 

See what students say about how they think education can help prepare them for the globalised world. Also, see why employers value intercultural skills.

(TIP™) is a well-established developmental process that has already helped over 16,000 people develop their intercultural skills.  It is now used in a wide range of commercial and educational organisations in over 150 different countries.

How does it work?

The (TIP™) process is based on 10 competencies and 22 behavioural dimensions. We have selected these on the basis of extensive academic research and also the practical experience of leaders and executives who have experience of working in unfamiliar cultural contexts.

The questionnaire and feedback reports are available in Chinese, English, German, French, Italian, Polish and Spanish. We have also developed a special online Wiki which provides an abundance of development suggestions for each of these 22 dimensions, some of which relate to specific national contexts. The product is supported by an international network of over 320+ coaches, consultants and trainers, who are certified by WorldWork to deliver feedbacks and coaching using the (TIP™) process.
