Individual intelligence is no longer enough


The only way to tackle complex problems is to harness the power of COGNITIVE DIVERSITY and CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE in a PSYCHOLOGICALLY SAFE environment.

Cultural differences are clashes of common senses. 8 out of 9 skills and mindsets are directly linked to how much people understand themselves and others.

60-80% of all problems in a company are due to clash of values, personalities and leadership challenges. They stem from the same source, the lack of understanding of why people think and behave differently and how to turn those differences into synergy instead of painful liability.

Cultural intelligence (ICQ) addresses the root cause of this challenge by developing the ability to see the same situation from different perspectives to

be able to make better decisions and  choose to respond instead of just reacting.

Over 90% companies use solutions based on data from the 60s and 70s designed for the challenges of people who grew up without internet, EU and cheap flights. The results they deliver jeopardize their success more than they might realise.

Uncommon Mindset, in other words, Cultural Intelligence, is about helping people get along with themselves and others so they can replace the illusion of superiority and separation with the power of curiosity and synergy. The more they understand themselves and the ones around them, the more energy and clarity they have to create what they want instead of fighting what they don’t.
