How much of a Difference does Intercultural Coaching make in Practice? Thoughts from a Customer.

In 2015 we ran an 1:1 intercultural coaching process with Anne Katrine Windfeld of Grundfos, who was working on global projects with stakeholders in places like China, Hungary, and Denmark.

After each coaching session, Anne reflected on what she had learned and how she could use the new knowledge in her global project work.

Now, two years later, Anne has a new job as the manager of a department at Grundfos, but she is still using what she learned during the coaching process.

Throughout the process, Anne did everything she could to get the most out of her intercultural training:

  • She thought about what type of cultural baggage she was bringing to the table
  • She was curious and asked lots of questions
  • She was brave and dared to do things differently
  • She took time to reflect over what was happening, why it was happening, and what she could learn from it

We think Anne is really cool. She gave us permission to share some of her thoughts from then and now with you. Check out Anne's reflections here.
