Values are the Foundation of Communication
Cultural Detective® (CD), is a dynamic tool that develops competence in people and organizations.
Written by 130 intercultural experts, it includes value profiles of 60 countries. But we also use CD to improve communication, transform conflict, build teams, plan strategy and debrief discussions.
It's helpful for exploring non-geographic questions people have about gender, generation, and sexual orientation.
Why Cultural Detective®? Our clients don't need a complicated global tool. Unlike other models, CD is:
- based on learning by experience, not memorizing details
- adaptable to any professional, not just global executives
- affordable for social profits, agencies and small business
