IDI Coaching

What is IDI?
The IDI is a tool that assesses an individual’s ability to communicate across what they perceive as cultural difference. In essence, the IDI measures an individual’s intercultural competence in a given and specified context
How does IDI work?
The IDI is a tool that allows us to better understand how our lived experiences have informed our cultural lens and our ability to navigate cultural differences and intercultural interactions
How is IDI used?
We take the IDI further and center it within racial equity and the culture of power, explicitly naming where power lives and how it flows through our bodies depending on our socially constructed identities and various personalities that we hold. Using the idi, organizations can meet diversity and inclusion goals by building skills to work in and across differences and improve relationships both personally and professionally.
Who is IDI beneficial for?
The IDI® is the only theory-based assessment of intercultural competence. Unlike other tools that measure separate personal characteristics (e.g., openmindedness, flexibility), the IDI allows you to see an individual’s or group’s progression along a continuum of cross-cultural competence. Because of this, the IDI provides in-depth insights on how individuals and groups make sense of cultural differences and also how they respond to cultural differences. The IDI measures both one’s mindset and skillset.
