Supportive Online Tools

The work with people and with the concrete process dynamic during interventions always remains the most essential contribution, however some online-tools have proven themselves useful to trigger further reflections and discussions and to uncover aspects of a personality, team or organization, which were invisible before.

I recommend the following tools in certain work settings; all of them require a certification process:

Energy8 - to describe, summarize organisational culture as perceived by the employees and compare with the personal style of the them, showing both the match as well as the distribution and emphasis of such a culture according to 8 predefined energy-models (based on Young’s archetypes).

Argonaut - creating a personal profile according to 12 cultural dimension, comparable then with country profiles. The tool offers hints of how to act in case of cultural gaps, further continuously expanding information about tens of countries and a good introduction to interculture itself.

On-line course intercultural management - video based on 6 sessions to complement face2face training

International Profiler - mirrors an individual’s preferred approach to working internationally and shows, across 22 key success factors , where the person puts more or less focus, energy and attention. By comparing the international role requirements of the individual with their scores, powerful feedback and coaching can be given to people who depend on international skills for professional success.

Team Trust Indicator - all team members assess various aspects of trust in the sense of what they get and what they would need from other team members. Both the gaps and the levels across 10 trust criteria and 50 elements of trust give concrete indicators about where to improve trust in the team. Very helpful, especially in multicultural and virtual teams, where trust is even more relevant than in mono-cultural teams. The results provide a trust compass which when discussed openly can leverage the power of this key to productive teamwork.. The tool is based on international research on trust.

Team Trust Indicator as Feedback-tool for Team-leaders - this version of the tool mentioned above collects the perceptions of the team members about trust aspects directly referring to the team-leader – what they get and what they want. Extremely useful to provide a differentiated feedback to leaders who want to learn how they can personally contribute to trust development in their team.

Online platforms for virtual team work – from Humap Oy Finland make virtual work, communication and contacts more practical and enjoyable.

ChangeGame - SW Simulation, a business game to practice change management in a company. Every action step is evaluated by the system, not always allowing corrections – a very realistic process. The tool is based on ample research and on a real case.

EIS and HingHe Change Management Simulation – in an European and separate in an Asian environment, exploring the influence of the culture in the change process
