WHO WE ARE

Intersights provides global leadership training, coaching, consultation, and dialogue facilitation services for global organizations.

 

Here at Intersights we believe a global mindset is the oil that keeps a diverse team running smoothly. In a collaborative environment, a global mindset can harness the skills and attributes of diversity to create understanding, inclusiveness, and clarity. 

Darin Short, founder of Intersights, has 30 years of experience in intercultural relations, accounting and financial services. He has facilitated hundreds of trainings, coaching sessions and team-building workshops. His broad experience and personal approach allow him to quickly establish trust in each of his engagements. Keys to Darin’s success are that he involves stakeholders at all levels of the organization and engages stakeholders using a variety of methods. Both of these approaches ensure organizations experience broad and sustained impact. One participant had this to say about Darin: “Darin’s insight to humans and culture is mind-blowing!”

Darin is certified in the following: Growth Zone 2.0™ (a blueprint for supporting leaders and teams in their efforts to become high performing individuals and teams), a licensed practitioner of Global DISC™ (a tool which provides the blueprint for understanding global diversity), and a Qualified Administrator of the IDI™ or Intercultural Development Inventory™ (the premier assessment tool for assessing global mindedness).

“We were impressed with how personal this training felt even though we were remote…All trainers showed that they are passionate about the topic and talking from experience. This was the best part for me. You could feel that their knowledge was not solely coming out of books. It felt very genuine and gave us trust in their coaching.” InterSights, Global Leadership Training Participant

    Group Training

    Our approach to talent development through Group Training in an intercultural and global context involves creating a blended learning experience that both individuals and groups benefit from. Exploring intercultural concepts amidst a diverse group of learners allows the learning to come alive.

    Individual Training

    In addition to group training we also provide Individual Training on the topics of cultural adjustment, expatriation, repatriation, cultural differences, intercultural development, and “doing business in and living in” specific countries

    Coaching

    Our approach to coaching involves exploration of your specific work experiences and making direct connections to intercultural communication and global mindset growth and development. We are confident our coaching services will greatly enhance your communications and relations with your colleagues and co-workers.

    Team Building

    Our approach to team-building involves doing so not only for the sake of team-building, but also for the opportunity to dive deep into the global and intercultural situations teams find themselves in.

    Executive Development


    We can support your executives in a way that they in turn can effectively influence the organization and empower your staff to become intercultural ambassadors with their peers, your clients, and other stakeholders of your organization.

    Staff Development

    Your staff is on the front lines and they need to be empowered and given the opportunity to increase their global-mindedness and enhance their intercultural competence. Imagine putting out an intercultural, global, or culture-specific message to prospective customers, employees, and other stakeholders which brings in a new diversity of persons who expect to be treated in a culturally relevant manner. If your staff has not been empowered to engage effectively with this diversity imagine how your customers, new employees and other stakeholders will respond. We can help foster the response you desire.

    Needs Assessment

    Organizations are complex entities and for many, knowing where to start is a significant challenge. Our Needs Assessment services help you to identify what the most relevant aspects of your organization are in regards to enhancing global leadership and intercultural development.

    Geographical Reach

    We also provide “doing business in and living in” services for many countries, including Mexico, Italy, Germany, Japan, China, India, Brazil, Puerto Rico, England, Ireland and the United States. If you need other country-specific guidance please contact us to let us know which countries you are interested in. We have a global network of colleagues that are able to provide country-specific information

    Dialogue Facilitation

    Dialogue facilitation in the context of cultural differences is a specialized service and is not something many facilitators have experience with. Our methods provide a unique blend of incorporating both commonality and difference which allows participants to feel heard, understood, and valued.

    WHO WE SERVE

    Global Businesses

    In the global business environment, we serve both mature companies and companies that are relatively new to the global business scene. If your company is just now ready to make your first investment in developing global leaders or helping your team members develop global mindsets this is exactly what we do and we do it well. Small or medium sized companies fit perfectly within our capacities to serve. Our global reach (i.e., through our global network of global mindset professionals on four different continents) allows us to serve your business effectively, efficiently, and economically.

    International Values-Driven Organizations

    If you have worked for an international non-profit 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. We provide exactly the kind of support that your staff needs to live, volunteer, or work internationally, whether it be pre-departure preparation, repatriation adjustment, group training, individual training, coaching, or team-building.

    Team Members

    At the heart of any business or organization are the people…the individuals. As professionals who have experienced our own leadership and global mindset development we understand what individuals want and need, what their concerns and questions are, and how to uncover and incorporate the best of their motivations. If the team members in your organization need the benefit of working with an experienced and empathetic partner we are here to help.

    U.S. Domestic Businesses

    As a business professional with 29 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.
