Diane Landsiedel, Senior Manager, General Motors Technical Education Prgram, says

"The International Profiler is an important, effective tool used by the GM Technical Education Program (TEP) to help support the success of GM employees worldwide to leading and working on globally distributed teams. The TIP questionnaire and feedback process are embedded in the requirements of a TEP sponsored seminar from UCLA called "Leading High Performance Distributed Technical Teams". GM technical employees from around the world at every level are eligible to enrol in the seminar. Several hundred employees have successfully completed the TIP questionnaire and feedback process to date with many more expected from all parts of the globe. Employee evaluations have been extremely positive. The TEP team has several members who have been licensed by WorldWork (See below). TIP seems to be on the leading edge and very well researched. We think it is a very effective way to grow the intercultural competencies of GM employees globally."

Johanna Hassan & Susan Bray, UCLA Extension Instructors, WorldWork Licensees, say

"The International Profiler (TIP) is a key element in the strategy of the General Motors Technical Education Program - to support the corporation as it transitions from being multi-national to becoming truly global. GM employees are working in teams that are increasingly virtual and cross-cultural in nature, and a critical core competency is the ability to work effectively in these environments. TIP is a central instructional / personal development tool in online courses in "Leading High Performance Distributed Technical Teams", that GM engineers take from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) It is also the basis for individual mentoring that is provided to many GM employees. In fact, the GM Technical Education Program is developing an in-house capability for providing individual mentoring in TIP results by supporting WorldWork licensing training for selected members of its staff. Over 300 GM employees have taken the International Profiler to date, and many more will take it this year (2008). As instructors providing online education and individual mentoring, we have found TIP to be an outstanding tool in supporting our efforts in developing cross-cultural competence within this major corporation."

Paul Flowers, Design Manager with Electrolux in Italy, says
"The International Profiler is an excellent team building tool - both in identifying the competences you lack and in bringing out and building on the skills you have within your team. It is also ideal for putting your own skills into context and preparing for forthcoming assignments."

Nigel Ewington, course leader of the University of Cambridge's Diploma in Intercultural Management says,
" Until now there has been very little in terms of a structured development process that can enable a manager to understand how the 'gap effect' of working across cultures might affect him or her at a personal level and how he or she can fill this gap in areas of need. The International Profiler performs this function very effectively."
