by Benjamin Gomes-Casseres

Global Dexterity: How to Adapt Your Behavior Across Cultures Without Losing Yourself in the Process
by Andy Molinsky

“I wrote this book because I believe that there is a serious gap in what has been written and communicated about cross-cultural management and what people actually struggle with on the ground.” 
Communicating with people from other cultures is an essential skill. Most of us collaborate with teams across borders and cultures on a regular basis, whether we spend our time in the office or out on the road. What's needed now is a critical new skill, something that Molinsky calls global dexterity.
