The International Profiler® is a must exercise for everyone working in an international setting or working with people from abroad. Even though I have worked in international organizations for over 10 years, I found TIP very relevant. It revealed to me important behavioral tendencies that I probably tend ignore but would bring more success to my work in a cross-cultural context. I look forward to implementing my development plan and subsequently better integration with international communities.
Internalizing the TIP however depends on the TIP practitioner. Karen Odelot provided a comprehensive background of the TIP, and a relaxing atmosphere during the debrief, that helped to me easily reflect over my strengths and weakness in regard to my multi-cultural work setting. She was very patient and professionally handled the entire profiling exercise.
