Global Dexterity

by Mike Hunter

Global-DexterityBeing a global worker and a true “citizen of the world” today goes beyond merely acknowledging cultural differences. It means being able to adapt one’s behavior to conform to new cultural contexts without losing one’s authentic self in the process. Not only is this difficult, it’s a frightening prospect for most people and something completely outside their comfort zone. But managing and communicating with people from other cultures is an essential skill today. Most collaborate with teams across borders and cultures on a regular basis, whether they spend time in the office or out on the road. What’s needed now is a critical new skill, something author Andy Molinsky calls “global dexterity.”
