Our Assessment Tool

The psychometrically validated Cultural Orientations Indicator® (COI) online assessment is utilized by organizations, teams, and individuals in global Fortune 500 companies to leverage diversity in the workplace.

As an essential tool in TMC’s Cultural Orientations Approach (COA), the Cultural Orientations Indicator® (COI) provides a nonjudgmental assessment of individual preferences, not personality traits, for appreciating, exploring, and valuing culture-based differences and similarities at work. The COI Assessment consists of 87 questions and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

The results of the COI Assessment are detailed in an individual’s COI Profile report, which can be viewed immediately after the assessment is completed. The COI Profile reflects social influences and an individual’s unique response to them in a work environment.

Certified COA Practitioners can use the COI Assessment and Profile to:

  • Alert individual users to potential gaps and similarities with other people and/or cultures
  • Highlight possible causes of tension, friction, and conflict in the workplace and within teams
  • Predict an individual's experience in specific social contexts
The assessment is available in 11 languages:
Chinese (Mandarin), English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Korean, Spanish (European), and Spanish (Americano Latino).
