Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) for Individuals & Teams

Are you looking to enhance your intercultural competence and foster a more inclusive and productive work environment? The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) is a valuable tool that can provide individuals and teams with actionable insights to navigate cultural differences more effectively. As an IDI Qualified Administrator, I am excited to share the numerous benefits of using the IDI for personal and professional development.

Understanding Intercultural Competence

The IDI is an online, theory-based assessment. It measures both mindset and skillset, allowing individuals and groups to better understand their successes and challenges related to cultural diversity[3]. By completing the IDI, individuals gain valuable insights into their current level of intercultural competence. They also receive guidance on further developing their abilities to navigate cultural differences[2].

Benefits of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) for Individuals

For individuals, the IDI provides useful feedback on how they engage with cultural diversity and identifies areas for growth[1]. It offers a unique opportunity for self-reflection and personal development. Individuals can gain a deeper understanding of their own cultural competence and take actionable steps to enhance it.

Benefits of the IDI for Teams

When used for group or team feedback, the IDI identifies the team’s primary way of engaging with cultural differences[1]. This insight is invaluable for organizations seeking to improve team-wide intercultural competence and foster a more inclusive and productive work environment. The IDI facilitates cooperative conversations and actions toward growth and development, making it a powerful tool for enhancing team dynamics.
