Intent v. Impact

What do we understand about intent?

What do we understand about impact?

The truth is we can never know what is in a person's heart or head, but we do know the impact a person's actions and words have on those around them. As culturally responsive, anti-bias practitioners, we want more than good intentions. We want our impact and intent to match.

Success in achieving goals and working with a diversity of people increases when you can more deeply understand culturally-learned differences, recognize commonalities between yourself and others, and act on an increased insight in ways that facilitate collaboration and achieving goals together with diverse individuals and groups.

Deeper cultural competence development includes increasing one's cultural self- and other-awareness. Working with a coach can increase insights and learning.

Consider your own identity using the graphic to the right. Think about primary & secondary identity and organizational & cultural identity. All rings intersect to create foundations of your cultural self.

Culture extends beyond race, ethnicity, and nation of origin. Culture is the compilation of category membership (e.g., gender identity, sexual orientation, spiritual & faith practices, etc.) as well as lived experiences (where you live, with whom you live, educational trajectory, etc.). Organizational and cultural identity (e.g., industry, tenure, power/authority views, time, collaboration/competition, structured/flexible, individual/team, etc.) are/were created by a group of people over time, historically by those who hold power. Culture is above the surface (e.g., art, music, food), and culture is below the surface (e.g., relationships, physical space, hierarchy).

Cultural competency is the ability to consider individual values & beliefs--below the surface--are culturally grounded and to shift perspectives & adapt behavior to cultural differences & commonality across primary, secondary, organizational, and cultural identity.

Cultural competency coaching with Wicht Consulting Inc leverages the Intercultural Development Inventory tool and crosswalks individual profile results with a set of anti-bias tenets for a personalized approach to ongoing intercultural development.

Through 1:1 CCC, you will gain insight concerning intercultural challenges you are facing, and identify intercultural competence development goals that are important to you, gain an increased understanding of how your intent and impact align (or misalign) and how you perceive and respond to cultural differences and commonalities, and identify and engage in targeted, developmental efforts that increase your intercultural competence in bridging across diverse communities in your personal and professional life.
