  • 1. Cultural Orientations Framework (COF) Assessment www.COFassessment.com Real time viewing of COF aggregate results and automatic generation of group profiles/ slideshows for reports and presentations Organizations today are operating in an increasingly complex, multicultural and global context. Cultural differences are often a source of misunderstanding, frustration and even derailment (particularly in cross-border mergers and acquisitions). However, when leveraged, cultural diversity opens new choices. It becomes a source of creativity and opportunity to go beyond current limitations to achieve sustainable and meaningful success. The COF assessment facilitates the understanding of salient cultural characteristics for individuals, teams and organizations. User friendly, straightforward, highly flexible and customizable, reasonably priced, the COF assessment is an ideal tool for individual coaching, leadership development, intercultural training, team coaching and organizational cultural audits. Easy administration to set up and follow up COF projects Based on Philippe Rosinski’s groundbreaking book Coaching Across Cultures, chosen by the Harvard Business School as its featured book recommendation in the category of business leadership, the COF assessment goes hand in hand with an inclusive and dynamic vision of culture, beyond the traditional binary and static approaches, which often tend to reinforce stereotypes. The COF assessment goes further than the sole national focus and allows users to examine the other cultural influencers that make up our identities (gender, ethnicity, profession, generation, etc.). It lets users view group cultural profiles in multiple, customizable ways (e.g., team, organization as well as profiles per categories/fields predefined by users, such as division, nationality, management level, merging entities, etc.).

See/download brochure from www.COFassessment.com ❝ The COF assessment has had a profound impact on my coaching practice, especially the team coaching aspect. It has become a fundamental part of my coaching process especially when working with newly formed interdepartmental or company teams and when working with international clients. As a tool, it propels the speed with which teams and individuals increase self awareness to their own behaviours and thinking patterns. It encourages the participants to identify, understand and assess their own culture in the workplace and begin to leverage cultural business diversity. As such it acts as an enabler for them to become open to new ways of thinking and identify more effective behaviours for them to reach their business goals. It certainly has been well received as part of my initial session. The process itself is fairly easy to master and thus administer and with the addition of the offline aggregate reporting, it’s easier to be fully self sufficient, although technical support was readily at hand if required. I thoroughly would recommend the usage of the COF assessment to any executive, international and team coach. I have had the pleasure to use it successfully with a range of leadership teams throughout Europe from Moscow through to the UK.❞ Adrian Green, Managing Partner, PressurePoint GB inski marketing ation communic animation • rh des hommes vente n distributio RoSINSkI lturalisme. g et de l’intercu dans un envie du coachin plus efficacement r ‰ la synthès pour travaille ration. ‰ des outils multiculturel. en considé les à prendre ronnement ions culturel de cas. ‰ les orientat es et études eux exempl ‰ Nombr www.dunod.com 1 52327-6 ISBN 978-2-10-0 firemních ent expert mondialem coaching reconnu en premier de dirigeants, à avoir été européen Certified nal désigné Master l’Internatio Coach par , il dirige Coach Federation Company.
