Cultural intelligence is the art of reconciling different positions and cultural mind-sets to produce positive and satisfying results for everyone involved.
Any effective teamwork is always a result of assembled diverse aspects and circumstances. The secret is to learn how to turn conflicting opposites into completing partners. Here we come to the deep sense of cross-cultural science: the art of finding advantages in differences – implementing reconciliation principles in reality.
The Model-of Freedom© is a unique methodology that facilitates understanding of behaviors and beliefs of various cultures. It helps to balance the different sets of expectations. In a state-of-the-art diagnostic process we assess and visualize the preferred behavior inside national cultures, in an organizations or individual cultural behavior.
The highlight of the Model-of Freedom© concept is to provide a “birds-eye perspective” of complex situations to build a holistic strategy of inclusive cooperation.
Today we define a classic psychology as the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Behavior is anything an organism does – any action we can observe or record. Mental processes are the internal, subjective experiences we infer from behavior – sensations, perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, feelings.
Combining the science of human behaviour and mental processes with experience of the world of work, business psychology strives to attain effective and sustainable performance for both individuals and organisations. It is is the study and practice of improving working life.
