Using the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI®) with the Spectra Assessment
The IDI is a robust and well-developed self-assessment tool that is often used by our Change Partners in conjunction with the Spectra Assessment. Here’s a case study of how one D&I consultant used both the IDI and the Spectra Assessment.
A non-profit organization requested one of our Change Partners to implement a diversity and inclusion program. She started by administering a Spectra Assessment with the organization’s Diversity Council. The results found that opinions differed along racial/ethnic demographic lines.
She then administered the IDI with the Diversity Council and organization’s managers/executives and followed it with special coaching. Finally, she administered the Spectra Assessment organization wide. Individual Reports were rolled out in advance of D&I training sessions.
Using the Spectra Assessment to uncover racial/ethnic issues and first coaching key stakeholders helped to ensure a successful organization-wide training initiative. The non-profit also made needed changes in several of its Policies, Practices and Procedures.
