Powerful force in business

CAFFE Strategies is where inclusion meets innovation. We offer unique intercultural creative thinking programs to develop the skills people need to WORK, CREATE and INNOVATE together.

Since developing intercultural competence (our ability to shift perspectives and adapt to cultures) parallels creative thinking development, our unique trainings integrate both developmental processes for individual and organizational success.

How Do I Experience

Intercultural Creativity™?

Our professional (yet very exciting) trainers utilize the signature Gems of Intercultural Creativity and the CAFFE Diamond Tools to sharpen and shine your intercultural development and creative thinking in a whole new way. Our interactive activities – involving observational play, the arts, reframing and imaginistic exercises – will position your team to discover hidden biases and roadblocks that could be inhibiting your inclusion and creativity goals. Opportunity follows ideas. Inclusive team building empowers creative collaboration. Let our diverse team equip your staff with proven strategies that support inclusion and the development of innovative ideas.
