Orientation: Research on cultural intelligence (CQ) is increasingly used to evaluate, explain and predict the cross-cultural efficacy of management behaviour in everyday cross-cultural interactions. However, there is limited evidence in cross-cultural coaching of the use of a CQ-based approach incorporating metacognition and experiential learning t...

Context 2
... (1984) identified four ELS, namely divergent, convergent, assimilative and accommodative. Each learning style, a function of individual circumstances and preference, occupies a quadrant on Kolb's learning cycle through the combination of adjacent learning stages (see Figure 1). The divergent learning style combines concrete experience and reflective observation and is associated with persons that embrace multiple perspectives and are imaginative in problem resolution. ...

Cognitive strategies, such as note-taking, summarizing, outlining, practising in naturalistic settings, and formally practising structures and sounds, allow the learner to manipulate language material in direct ways (Khoiriah, 2015;Van Der Horst & Albertyn, 2018). Applying, highlighting, and elaboration are all examples of cognitive strategies. ...

... Coaching in various professional settings is paradoxically similar yet has distinctive challenges ( van Nieuwerburgh, 2015); values-based coaching supports the thought-process of individual alignment, yet, the coach experiences perilous exploration within the organisational context, where one would need to be cognisant of their own values (Arieli et al., 2020;Roccas & Sagiv, 2010;van der Horst & Albertyn, 2018;Vijfeijken, 2019). ...
... These aspects of discomfort did not deter the participants; it allowed metacognition for considering various diversity factors in their coaching: language and being misunderstood were concerns for fear of offending. Nonetheless, it was overcome through mindfulness of assumptions (Spence, 2015;Van Der Horst & Albertyn, 2018). ...

Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis was applied to explore coaches’ experience using a values-based coaching framework within an international non-profit organisation. The ‘Coaching for Alignment’ model facilitated values-based coaching through semi-structured interviews; the subjective experience and phenomenological thinking of values were explored. The participants' experience provided emergent themes of thought provocation, empowerment, and discomfort through the coaching dialogue. Preliminary insight into how coaching for values can support the coaches’ development in realising values congruence, interpreted through a positive psychology coaching lens, is offered. Values-based coaching in non-profits organisations can encourage self-reflection and empowerment in coaches supporting organisational coaching programmes.
... This article adopts its most popular multidimensional structure comprising four aspects of CQ: (a) metacognitive CQ (awareness and understanding of cultural diversity and regulation of cultural knowledge); (b) cognitive CQ (cultural knowledge); (c) motivational CQ (drive and efficacy to engagement in culturally diverse contexts); and (d) behavioral CQ (appropriate verbal and non-verbal behaviors in culturally diverse contexts) (Ang et al., 2007;Earley & Ang, 2003;Earley & Mosakowski, 2004). It has been postulated that metacognitive CQ as well as behavioral CQ are crucial for intercultural competency (Rose et al., 2010;Van der Horst & Albertyn, 2018). Moreover, evidence shows that meta-cognitive and motivational CQ shape behavioral CQ (Gooden et al., 2017). ...

People with disabilities have been increasingly regarded as the most powerful and overlooked workforce in the labor market, although frequently confronted with ineffectiveness in cooperation with colleagues without disabilities. The traditional paradigm of inclusion considers blind people as dependents needing help. Inclusive society is highly aimed at effective interactions between the workforce with and without disabilities. The present article regards people with disabilities as those having diverse potentials, which stem from different cultural backgrounds, and behaving differently during intercultural interactions with individuals without disabilities. This article proposes a new disability inclusion paradigm involving successful blind professionals in mentoring activities, to share their experience with top managers and experts in Russian organizations. Through focus groups and in-depth interviews, this article finds specific differences in explicit and implicit interactive behaviors between individuals with and without blindness.
... As expected, students with higher CQ display higher cognitive engagement; CQ enhances the exploration of different perspectives, enabling students to critically evaluate their own views, and it facilitates the communication processes needed for higher-level learning in a culturally diverse context. The measurement model for CQ identifies metacognitive CQ as the strongest determinant of overall CQ, which is in line with previous research that identifies metacognitive CQ as the key component that integrates the other dimensions (Thomas et al., 2008;Van Der Horst & Albertyn, 2018). Cultural metacognition can facilitate cognitive engagement, because it allows students to adapt their communication flexibly, in a way that is beneficial in that particular group (Ang et al., 2007;Chua et al., 2012). ...

To prepare students for an increasingly globalized world, intercultural group work (IGW) holds promise as a pedagogical tool, because it may help them develop intercultural competence and second-language proficiency. These skills also are needed to complete the discipline-specific aspects of group work successfully. This study investigates the extent to which cultural intelligence (CQ), English language proficiency, and personality contribute to students’ cognitive engagement in IGW. A questionnaire was completed by 846 students from six universities in the Netherlands and Canada. Structural equation modeling analyses revealed that CQ and the personality trait of openness are the strongest predictors of cognitive engagement. English language proficiency is a relatively weak predictor. The development of CQ thus should be actively promoted to enhance students’ cognitive engagement in IGW.

Commonly, learning is expected to happen uniformly even in large classes. Typically, instructors can provide only a single learning setting in presence courses. Yet, student groups are heterogeneous in terms of their learning styles. This paper presents a learning concept which uses Kolb's Learning Style Inventory to address different groups of learning habits adequately. This learning concept is used as a pilot in an introductory course on software engineering for learning modelling with the Unified Modelling Language.

This study aims to analyze the activities of teachers, students' activities in mathematics learning outcomes in the material for building space for high-class students, especially for elementary school education. The subjects of this research are fifth grade students at SDN Kutabumi 1, which is a school located in one of the areas in Tangerang Regency, precisely in Kutabumi Village for the 2021-2022 academic year with a total of 24 students. The results showed that teacher activity increased with very good criteria and student activity with very active criteria. It can be concluded that the teacher's activities run smoothly, student activities and learning outcomes of Mathematics in Building Spaces material increase at each meeting. This research is a type of quantitative descriptive research. This study uses a problem-solving ability test sheet and student activity observation sheets as research instruments. Because each level requires a different absorption of learning, the higher the level of majority education, the more power needs to be spent to achieve something that is expected. This research uses the interview method to one of the teachers at SDN Kutabumi 1. The interviews were conducted directly/Offline by approaching the resource persons. Hopefully, after this research and interview, we and the team will get answers and solutions to the problem solving that we are researching and make learning which is much better than before this research and research was conducted.
Chapter
This chapter addresses how coaching for leadership development has evolved from traditional models of management which relied on reward and punishment techniques and command-and-control practices, to be based on transformational models of leadership. The emergence of emotional intelligence highlighted the importance of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and social skills in effective leadership practices. Management skills are still required in organisations to plan and budget, organise and staff, control and problem-solve, and stabilise the business. However, research has identified that effective leadership practices require managers to also establish direction, align people, motivate and inspire employees, and produce change. To assist managers develop these contemporary leadership practices, coaching has been identified as a valid developmental intervention. Manager as Coach programs are increasingly being introduced into organisations to assist managers change their traditional management style into a coaching leadership style. Coaching may be delivered either formally by HR professionals or leaders who have trained to become a fully qualified coach, or informally by managers or peers who use coaching skills to conduct coaching, feedback or corridor conversations with their direct reports.
