The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities.
Intercultural competence has been identified as a critical capability in a number of studies focusing on overseas effectiveness of international sojourners, international business adaptation and job performance, international student adjustment, international transfer of technology and information, international study abroad, and inter-ethnic relations within nations.

The Intercultural Development Inventory has been psychometrically tested and found to possess strong validity and reliability across diverse cultural groups. This validity includes predictive validity within both the corporate and educational sectors. The IDI has been rigorously tested and has cross-cultural generalizability, both internationally and with domestic diversity. Psychometric scale construction protocols were followed to ensure that the IDI is not culturally biased or susceptible to social desirability effects (i.e., individuals cannot “figure out” how to answer in order to gain a higher score).

The IDI possesses strong content and construct validity. Recent studies also indicate strong predictive validity of the IDI. In one study within the corporate sector, higher levels of intercultural competence, as measured by the IDI, were strongly predictive of successful recruitment and staffing of diverse talent in organizations. In another study, higher IDI scores among students were predictive of important study abroad outcomes, including greater knowledge of the host culture, less intercultural anxiety when interacting with culturally diverse individuals, increased intercultural friendships, and higher satisfaction with one’s study abroad experience.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories originated by Carl Gustav Jung.

This instrument can be used in one-to-one and group settings, and has a wide range of workplace applications including: individual development and executive coaching; management and leadership development; team-building and development; organizational change and improving communication.

In an increasingly complex and dynamic business world, people have become the main source of competitive advantage. It is therefore critical for teams to understand and manage their talent and exploit the full potential of diversity within the team. This MBTI ® workshop helps teams to discover more effective ways of working to their common purpose and towards mutual understanding.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® (MBTI) questionnaire is the most widely used personality questionnaire worldwide.
