Dubai, UAE—March 16, 2023: We are thrilled to share about a new strategic alliance between North Point Academy UAE and KnowledgeWorkx to offer all our clients access to a deeper and more robust portfolio of solutions drawing from KnowledgeWorkx’s intercultural and North Point’s transformational expertise.
Intertwined in our passion for equipping people with coaching skills and cultural agility, we have collaborated in numerous projects culminating in the co-creation of the Certificate in Intercultural Coaching. In continuing to strengthen our partnership through the years to make a stronger impact to the world, the natural next step was to formally create a strategic alliance.
About North Point Academy
Started in 2012 in Dubai, North Point Academy (NPA) empowers clients to build transformational communities of people living from the inside-out. Through thousands of hours of coaching and training leaders from dozens of nationalities, we developed proprietary coaching methodology, models and tools to serve clients through our coaching and leadership development programmes.
This methodology inspires transformative change and promotes success in a world where worldviews, cultures, and opportunities converge.
Our flagship programmes are the Certificate in Professional Coaching and the Certificate in Intercultural Coaching. Both are accredited through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the latter of which we designed in partnership with KnowledgeWorkx.
KnowledgeWorkx equips professionals with the cultural agility they need to navigate cultural and interpersonal gaps. Over the last 20 years, we have developed solutions that are global, locally relevant, holistic and practical to connect national, personal, team and organizational culture.
We believe that: "Organizational culture is the sumtotal of the expression of the thinking, speaking and acting of its contributors." This is why it is crucial to use tools to map the personal culture of your contributors and illuminate the foundational building blocks that drive personal, team and organizational development.
We believe that blended solutions result in sustainable success. To accomplish this we integrate consulting, coaching, learning & development and certification to create tailored solutions that combine in-person and virtual engagement.
What this means to you—Deeper more holistic solutions
This brings significant advantages for you. The deeper administrative and creative collaboration means both the value and quality of service you receive will increase.
Furthermore, both organizations’ clients will gain access to a more robust portfolio of solutions: North Point’s coach training offerings and KnowledgeWorkx’s intercultural (Three Colors of Worldview, 12 Dimensions of Culture) and interpersonal (Everything DiSC, Five Behaviors) solutions.
This strategic alliance means you can access new services and areas of expertise in the future plus a fully enhanced service from the joint forces of both organisations.
What will remain
However, there are several things we want to point out that will not change:
North Point Academy and KnowledgeWorkx will continue to serve you independently as separate organizations.
You will continue to work with the same people in our organization you have in the past. All of our people are being retained in their current roles.
Your fees and costs associated with our organization will not change.
The services we have provided you in the past will continue to be offered.
All mentoring session, groups and individual, are available for those who need to complete their hours.
The accreditation you are holding from North Point Academy will remain valid.
Our certification team is ready to support you if you have questions regarding your accreditation.
What will change
There will be no changes in the operations aside from the following:
