Meet the Cultural Navigator
This online application provides comprehensive cultural and business information designed to increase your competitive advantage in today’s global business environment. The Cultural Navigator offers a unique learning experience that can be personalised based on your business interests and customised to your organisation’s initiatives.
The Cultural Navigator helps users learn about their own personal cultural preferences and introduces them to the tools they need to communicate and collaborate more effectively with those from different backgrounds.
The platform includes dozens of learning activities and networking opportunities to facilitate collaboration across cultures.
Understand your cultural preferences
Our cultural assessment, the Cultural Orientations Indicator, is organised into three dimensions to help you identify your cultural preferences across your Interaction Style, Thinking Style, and Sense of Self. The COI is psychometrically validated for reliable results. The assessment and report are available in 12 languages: English, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish (Americano Latino), Spanish (Espanol), and Turkish.
Beyond handshakes and business cards
We believe that culture goes beyond language and traditions – it’s an essential part of understanding how organisations, teams and individuals function. Our comprehensive approach to culture is behind every part of Cultural Navigator, from our best-in-class assessment and comparison tools featuring a neutral vocabulary to spark discussions and engagement, to our dynamic e-learning activities designed for the adult learner.
Real people. Real expertise
Spanning over 100 countries, with expert managerial, negotiation and inclusion research for nearly 60 of them, our extensive knowledge base has been and continues to be developed by our network of consultants and researchers. Self-directed Internet research and travel guides can’t match our years of knowledge and experience when it comes to conducting business across borders.
Because everyone’s individual culture is unique, so is everyone’s experience in the Cultural Navigator. We make it easy to select topics of interest and build deep knowledge with Learning Paths, which can be chosen by the individual or suggested by managers. The COI cultural assessment and all corresponding individual reports are available in multiple languages. Cultural Navigator is accessible from anywhere you have Internet access – including tablet devices.
