COF@Rosinski – Rosinski’s Coaching Across Cultures

Facilitators: Natalie De Broux and Alessandro LoRusso

Philippe Rosinski addresses culture as a concept involving people from different organizations and backgrounds. By looking at coaching from cultural perpectives, he is able to explore what can be learned from cultural differences and similarities. The book Coaching Across Cultures helps readers to become more aware of their cultural orientations, appreciate how cultural inclinations affect coaching styles, and leverage differences constructively with the use of its integrative model: ”The Cultural Orientations Framework” (COF).

The author suggests that, for the coach, using the COF online assessment tool with its 17 cultural dimensions, opens up greater awareness and clarity about one’s own cultural starting points and assumptions, particularly the cultural foundations of values and beliefs. For coaches and managers, this assessment tool can open up to a deeper understanding of learned behaviours; the degree of congruence or incongruence experienced in different aspects of life; and to the possibility of consciously choosing different orientations. The conceptual dimensions of the COF as operationalised in the tool stimulates reflective learning and leverages cultural diversity to a common advantage.
