Services Designed to Develop
Your International Talent

International employees are key contributors. They have often been chosen to fill a strategic role. If they cannot express their ideas clearly, concisely, and in a culturally appropriate way, they might not be able to make their full contribution. Making sure everyone's voice at the table can be heard is a vital part of a successful DE&I strategy. We design our courses to incorporate Peterson's Developmental Pipeline, including accountability, internal mentoring, and real-world practice. Whether you choose 1:1 Coaching or the Group Course Option, your international employees will find their authentic voice and bring their full professional value to the team.
