IGCTC’s training approach is based on more than 20 years of research, seminar development and coaching in the field, domestically and internationally. Reviewing established literature and comparative studies, combined with our own experiences working in different cultural settings, allows us to confirm well-known facts, stretch our thinking, reach new conclusions and establish best practices in intercultural and global competency seminar development and coaching services.

Intercultural researcher and pioneer Milton J. Bennett describes culture as “learned and shared values, beliefs, and behavior of a group of interacting people.” At IGCTC we teach cultural competency based on this definition in order to train and empower people, through high-quality, customized seminars that prepare participants to communicate and collaborate more efficiently and effectively when they engage interculturally.
Renown scholars, such as William B. Gudykunst, Edward T.Hall, Charles Hampden-Turner, Geert Hofstede, Gert Jan Hofstede, Michael Minkov, Stella Ting-Toomey, Alfonsus Trompenaars, and Clyde Kluckhohn’s theories inspire us in our work.
We have also drawn from the wealth of knowledge established by such recognized cross cultural psychologists as John W. Berry, Michael Harris Bond, Hazel Rose Markus and Richard Allan Shweder.
