Intercultural Readiness Check

 is one of the leading tools for assessing intercultural competences. More than 27,000 people from all over the world have filled in the IRC in order to reflect on how they can improve their intercultural effectiveness. The IRC assesses individuals on four vital intercultural competences:                                   

  1. Intercultural Sensitivity: How actively are you interested in other people, their cultural backgrounds, needs and perspectives? How much do you notice when interacting with people from other cultures?
  2. Intercultural Communication: How mindful are you when communicating with others? How effectively do you adjust your style to meet their expectations and needs?
  3. Building Commitment: How much do you invest into developing relationships and diverse networks? How creative are you in developing solutions that satisfy the interests of different stakeholders?
  4. Managing Uncertainty: How well do you deal with the complexities of greater cultural diversity? How effectively do you use cultural diversity as a source of learning and innovation?

The IRC will support you in building the competences you need to bridge cultural differences.
