Sights on Success Consulting offers a range of culturally safe programs to foster Leadership Development in Intercultural Competence.
Intercultural Competence can be defined as the capability to shift one’s cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. (Mitchell R. Hammer, SAGE Encyclopedia of Intercultural Competence. Ed. Janet M. Bennett, 2015.)
Our programs are available to both teams and individuals and are intended to help them grow Intercultural Competence to reach and match their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility, and Truth and Reconciliation aspirations and goals.
The main benefit is developing the ability to bridge cultural/value differences more appropriately and effectively across diversity dimensions such as age and generation, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion, etc.

“I am a physician. Working with Angeline on improving my intercultural competence was a true eye opening experience. The evidence based assessment and excellent resources coupled with Angeline’s expertise provided a really high quality experience. I realize that true intercultural competence cannot be passively absorbed from the environment around a person or even well-intended reading and exposure. There must be an intentional and guided exploration of one’s own position along the continuum of competence (always much less developed than we assume) and then meaningful work to follow to progress towards more competence. I benefited greatly from my experience with Angeline. I believe that this training should be added to the medical school curriculum.”
