What We Do


We combine in person and virtual training with our trademarked ICBI™ assessments. The ICBI™ process empowers colleagues, clients, partners, and staff to compare their cultural preferences and use that knowledge to create a more efficient business environment.

Newly formed teams will find they are able to build their processes and patterns based on a foundation of awareness that supports the creation of an inclusive environment. This hinges on a respectful understanding of their differences.

Long-established teams will use their new knowledge to identify the root of persistent problems stemming from cultural misunderstandings, enabling them to break the deadlock and address tensions related to cultural gaps.
