Product description


"Global Dexterity by Andy Molinsky is the best book I’ve come across for providing practical, research-based suggestions for adapting (and not adapting) behavior." — David Livermore, PhD as seen on Cultural Intelligence Center

“A resolutely practical approach, supported by numerous examples that make this book lively, useful and interesting to read.” — Manageris

“It's a book I recommend highly, particularly to people who are put in non-U.S. cultural situations but have not yet put much thought into the implications.” — Federal Computer Week

Global Dexterity is an easy read and one that is accessible to people from all cultural backgrounds…” — International Higher Education Consulting

“…an important book with wide application to the field of international education.” — NAFSA’s International Educator

“When it comes to cultural competence, there are some big gaps between knowing about, knowing how to, and actually developing and applying the skills to manage self in real situations. Andy Molinsky has provided us with a methodology for bridging into the third and most critical of these steps, and his choice of the word "dexterity" in the title of the book is well chosen... The book is well written and an easy read.” — George Simons—SIETAR France (Society of Intercultural Education Training and Research)

“This book is a quick and easy-to-understand resource for anyone who might find himself in a remotely foreign culture. It might simply save you some unneeded embarrassment, or it might go as far as saving your job.” — 800 CEO READ

“Molinsky presents a succinct method for figuring out how to adapt to new cultural events, such as delivering feedback to Japanese colleagues, interviewing for a job in an overseas country, or participating more successfully in a meeting with foreign executives.” — Global Business and Organizational Excellence

“a very readable and enjoyable primer with helpful tips for cross cultural behavior.” — The International Admissions Officer Bookshelf - Summer 2013, Intead (International Education Advantage)

“This is a one-of-a-kind book on developing cross-cultural insight. Like most subjects, you cannot learn it in one reading. Practice is essential. But Andy Molinsky provides you an excellent start.” — BIZ INDIA

ADVANCE PRAISE for Global Dexterity:

Ted Manley, VP, Total Rewards and HR Operations, Dunkin’ Brands Inc.—
Global Dexterity truly resonates. As an HR executive with over thirty years of experience in global companies, I can see a real advantage in using the book’s tips and techniques to help manage and communicate with people from around the world!”

Steven A. Rochlin, Member of the Board of Directors and Head of Global Advisory Services, AccountAbility; coauthor, Beyond Good Company and Untapped
“Andy Molinsky shows us that successful leaders crack the code of foreign cultures and adjust their behavior accordingly. Then he explains how it’s done. Global Dexterity is an indispensable guide for managing a globalizing world.”

Adam Weinberg, President and CEO, World Learning—
“The future will be shaped by people who can effectively live and work across cultural differences. Andy Molinsky provides a series of simple and effective tools for helping people understand where cultural differences come from and for helping us, as individuals, develop our own capacity to bridge those differences effectively. Global dexterity is an important concept, and this is an important book.”

Mansi Madan Tripathy, Chief Marketing Officer, Shell India—
Global Dexterity provides a clear road map to conquer the quest for cultural diversity, which is critical in today’s flat world. The self-assessments on identifying cultural gaps and working on a personal mind-set to overcome them will prove handy to anyone working in a new cultural environment.”

Matthias Kempf, Director, HR Talent Europe, adidas Group—
“Andy Molinsky does a masterful job of demystifying the challenges one faces working in or with other cultures. His book is as insightful as it is practical. In a world in which you need to both understand and adapt to cultural differences, this is the book to read.”
