Summary

What does it mean to be a global worker or #145;citizen of the world' today? It goes beyond mere acknowledgment of cultural differences. In truth, it often takes the actual adaptation of your behavior to fit into new cultural contexts--something frightening for most people, and completely out of their comfort zone. But managing and communicating with people from other cultures is an essential skill today. Most people are working on a regular basis with international colleagues, or are part of a diverse team where members have different backgrounds and styles. What's needed is a new skill: global dexterity. In Global Dexterity: How to Adapt Your Behavior Across Cultures without Losing Yourself in the Process, Andy Molinsky gives you the tools needed to adapt your behavior to new cultural contexts--what he calls "cultural code-switching." He teaches us to switch behaviors and overcome the emotional and psychological challenges of doing so, relaying his findings from more than 15 years of research, teaching, and consulting with managers and executives around the world. Practical, engaging, and refreshing, Global Dexteritywill help you reach across cultures--to help your team, your productivity, and your career.
