Understanding the Value of the GlobeSmart Profile as a Cultural Intelligence Training Tool

It is not an assessment or a diagnostic tool; there is no right or wrong profile. Instead, it is a statistically valid and reliable tool for helping you increase your awareness of potential gaps between your preferred way of operating and those of your colleagues, and for developing strategies for effectively bridging those differences.
With the GlobeSmart Profile, you will have access to:
- A 40 item survey to discover your personal work style
- Detailed information and video scenarios on GlobeSmart’s five dimensions of culture
- Comparisons with the average profiles of 95+ countries

Benefit from the power of one of the strongest cultural inventories in the market.
The GlobeSmart Profile uses data from industry-leading cross-cultural researchers and Aperian Global associates around the world, so users can feel confident they’re getting a valuable resource they can trust. Over 800,000 people have chosen the GlobeSmart Profile as a resource to support their global
business interactions. It begins with a short survey, which is used to create a personal profile, based on five dimensions of culture:
- Independent vs. Interdependent
- Egalitarianism vs. Status
- Risk vs. Certainty
- Direct vs. Indirect
- Task vs. Relationship
The GlobeSmart Profile then delivers extensive, dynamically generated advice for how to be most effective when working with the styles of the culture or colleagues selected. Users can also gain a better understanding of their own unique team dynamics by reviewing their team profile, based on an average of the profiles of all team members.
The GlobeSmart Profile is available in 13 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Thai.
Enhanced content makes results more meaningful
Users can also watch short vignettes that depict people from various ends of the work preference continuum interacting with one another, enabling them to more fully understand the meaning of their profiles & how those profiles might look in the real world.
