Developing inclusive cultures with the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)
The IDI enables both individuals and groups to test and adapt their behaviour to diversity and difference, and to develop the leadership skills and competencies necessary to work effectively with social and cultural differences.
Our specialist IDI practitioners will provide an initial briefing for your staff. They’ll introduce the diagnostic, and explore the key attributes of cultural adaptability. After the 30-minute IDI psychometric assessment, they’ll also give individual feedback on your IDI results in one-to-one, developmental coaching sessions, and report on the group’s cultural awareness as a whole.
The Intercultural Development Inventory is a powerful diagnostic tool. Developed and rigorously tested in the United States, it has been translated into 17 languages and is now used in more than 40 countries. Most of the other assessment tools available only measure characteristics or behaviours thought to be associated with inclusive cultures. As a result, it is difficult to establish their validity and reliability. The IDI is different because it is grounded in cultural adaptability theory, and meets the standard scientific criteria for a valid psychometric tool.
