Masterclass outline:

Deeply entrenched cultural norms, values and beliefs contribute towards biases, stereotyping and differing working practices. Yet, global organisations are demanding more effective methods to accommodate and benefit from difference.  Jenny has designed solutions for leaders, executive and team coaching based on The Cross-Cultural Kaleidoscope®.  This is a systems approach to coaching that increases awareness of the cultural influences upon coaches and their clients. Now, having developed her knowledge of systemic constellations, she has integrated this approach into practice.  The result is a toolkit, comprising desktop and floor models for both one-one and team coaching.  Come along and have fun experiencing a novel approach. 

The Masterclass will include:

  • Overview of key intercultural theory and dilemmas
  • The background to the Cross-Cultural Kaleidoscope® Research
  • How to use the Cross-Cultural Kaleidoscope®: one-one and teams
  • Cross-Cultural coaching scenarios 
  • Experiential practice 
  • Hints and Tips for application to practice

Masterclass aims & objectives:
This one-day master-class is designed for practitioners who operate in a global or multi-cultural context with the aim of exploring the impact of culture in the coaching relationship. The objective is to raise awareness to cultural influences and dynamics and to introduce you to a tool for use in your intercultural practice.  Learn experientially and have fun!

Masterclass content:
Rooted in research and proven in practice, you will be introduced to the Cross-Cultural Kaleidoscope® tool and be invited to experiment with it.  Using the principles of systemic constellations, you will embody your inter-cultural experiences and learn how they contribute to your personal and cultural identity as well as question whether those cultural mandates are appropriate, given a change of context, environment or team.  You will not only learn how to use the toolkit, you will raise awareness of your own cultural influences and co-coach your fellow participants to ‘unlearn’ any unhelpful cultural patterns.  You will leave with greater self-awareness about the impact of your own cultural patterns and you will have enhanced your intercultural skillset.  Be prepared to take your shoes off and be experiential with a floor mat!
