TESTIMONIALS from our participants in the online editions:
"Leading and Coaching Across Cultures was a wonderful learning experience. The Cultural Orientations Framework offers a powerful and versatile framework, with which to better understand and leverage the potential of cultural differences across individuals and groups. The program was carefully curated to be a blend of theoretical inputs coupled with hands-on practical application of concepts – the diversity and multicultural nature of my program cohort was in itself a rich source of insights. I’m looking forward to applying the tools and concepts I’ve learnt, on both my coaching assignments, as well as in my organizational work context which involves communication and change management across multiple geographies and organizations."
Raj Dharmaraj, India

"A highly recommended seminar, brilliantly delivered by Philippe, Phek and Gregory! It perfectly combines theory and practical applications. You will discover or revisit how powerful culture diversity is and how to leverage it in your coaching and/or leadership to unleash human potential and achieve a higher performance."
Valerie Guglielmi, China

"Reading Philippe’s books is one thing and taking the course with him personally is another thing. Philippe is humble and open and create a space of exchange that takes the participants to another level of understanding of the cultural orientations framework and coaching across cultures. Getting to practice the COF deepens the learning and opens up so many opportunities on how to be a global coach in these new VUCA world. If you believe like me that effective coaching is holistic and should integrate many perspectives to support your clients in their growth journey then you have already embraced Philippe’s global approach and this course is for you."
Linda Bawazir, Thailand

"I was looking for a practical and mind-opening tool to work with teams. The COF really has all I need to tap into cultural diversity and leverage on each individual’s potential."
Antonino Faibene, Portugal

"I first heard about this seminar in 2013 when I lived in Shanghai, China, but only now was able to take part in it thanks to an online format. I am very satisfied with this course. The richness and depth of the model makes it relevant and applicable by coaches and trainers for helping leaders in MNCs and entrepreneurs in start-ups, for working with teams and organizations in private and public sector and for solving larger societal issues. It is quite a unique framework developed by the world leading intercultural coach for intercultural coaches. I look forward to applying the COF in my coaching work."
Natalia Fey, Finland

"Ours was the first online offering of the Cultural Orientations Framework certification program.
Before the program began, we were warmly welcomed into the community by the co-leaders.
We were assigned pre-work that required us to be vulnerable, creative, analytical, and strategic– a perfect introduction to the COF and the cultural complexities it illuminates.
Coming from this common experience, international colleagues stepped into the learning space with curiosity and trust.
Encouraged by all the leaders, over the coming month we built on the initial trust; experienced real-time cross-cultural learning; explored ‘blind spots;’ and reflected on how interventions could broaden understanding and enhance performance.
The Cultural Orientations Framework, with its nuanced dimensions and the holistic, creative approach to cultural learning modelled by Philippe Rosinski and the team, is invaluable for exploring not only team and board diversity but also for gaining essential cultural self-awareness."

Claire Rettie, Canada


In our multicultural and fast-changing environment, it is essential to embrace diversity, bridge cultural gaps, learn from cultural differences for more creativity, allowing us to act responsibly, overcome divisions, live meaningfully and strive for internal and external unity.

Leadership and coaching that integrates multiple perspectives is a powerful vehicle for enabling sustainable and global success for ourselves and others. The program focuses on the cultural perspective in the context of a broader vision that also integrates physical,  managerial,  psychological, political and spiritual perspectives.

The objective of the program is to equip leaders, HR professionals, coaches, supervisors, trainers and consultants to systematically integrate the cultural dimension into their work. The program is also destined for interculturalists eager to integrate coaching  into their practice.
