The competitive advantage to bring out the best in diverse teams through Intelligent Global Leadershipin a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world


90% of business is interaction between people who think and behave differently. When companies put smart people in teams, they are hoping to create synergy by combining their skills, in reality, those differences turn into liability and they deliver only a fraction of the results they are capable of. Most of the time they cannot work out why or they don’t even realise how much potential is untapped.


On average, 79% of team performance is lost because of the clash of values and personalities combined with poor leadership. All 3 of them stem from the same source, lack of ICQ.  Once it is developed, they can focus on what they want to achieve instead of fighting what they don’t want.

Middle-managers are the most disengaged layer of a company.  75% of employees leave because of them and the disengaged ones who stay, cost the organisation an extra 34% in lost productivity and reputation. Their ability to lead in a way that employees feel understood and motivated is the key to tap into the wealth of expertise and knowledge within the company. 

Cultural intelligence (ICQ) is way beyond nationalities. It is about bridging the gaps caused by illusions and assumptions by understanding our own mindset first so we can connect with others instead of clashing with them.

Cultural differences are clashes of common senses and we don’t have to go too far to experience it. Sometimes the biggest cultural differences are around us, not on the other side of the Globe.

Intelligent Global Leadership

The Intelligent Global Leadership program is an ICF accredited program that combines the Global DISC and Bamboo Strong models into one, practical framework. It is available for coaches and trainers who want to stand out from the crowd by offering the latest solutions to their clients, as well as, for leaders who want to leverage personal and cultural differences in their team.

Confidence is when your actions match up with your words. It is based on self-awareness, knowing what, how and why you do act, think and feel the way you do. The IGL program gives you the blueprint of your mindset and the strategies to respond the best possible way instead of just reacting instinctively.
Competence is the ability to choose the best response to each situation and to bring people together who have a common future as opposed to just a common past and thrive in a VUCA environment where others are struggling.
