WHO WE SERVE
U.S. Domestic Businesses
As a business professional with 26 years of experience and as founder of Intersights, Darin Short understands the challenges and opportunities leaders encounter while running a business as well as the experiences of staff while working within the organization. In particular, his background in public accounting has provided a broad understanding of the business complexities found within an organization.
Non-Profits and NGO’s
You or someone you know likely has a direct connection to someone serving in the Non-Profit (NP) or NGO (Non Governmental Organization) context. You also likely have a passion for serving and supporting NP’s/NGO’s whether that be through leadership, employment, volunteering, or funding. We have the same passion.
At the heart of any business or organization are the people…the individuals. As professionals who have experienced our own intercultural development and global leadership development we understand what individuals want and need, what motivates them and the spectrum of concerns, excitement, and questions they have. If you are an individual who wants to work with an informed and empathetic interculturalist we are here to help.
In the global business environment, we specialize in serving companies that are relatively new to the global business scene or companies that are just now ready to make their first or a different investment in developing intercultural competence and global leaders. Companies considered to be small or medium in size fall perfectly within our capacities to serve. Our global reach (i.e., through our global network of intercultural professionals on three different continents) allows us to serve your business effectively, efficiently, and economically.
If you have worked for an international organization for any amount of time you know how important cultural adjustment and culture-specific training can be for those who are going on an overseas assignment. A variety of our services can provide the support that will benefit your staff who will be living, volunteering, or working internationally, whether it be pre-departure preparation, group training, individual training, coaching, team-building, repatriation adjustment, or staff development.
