Finishing Andy Molinsky’s work on cultural adaptation, in which he calls “Global Dexterity,” provided a lot of framework and various cases of successful managers encountering cultural dilemma’s in the workplace. This book is recommended for manager’s and staff alike being deployed abroad and being exposed to new workplaces and societies that differ from their own norms.
Strategies and diagrams provided in this Harvard published book can greatly help any individual assess their own situation and devise ways to both adapt and appropriate effectively towards personal morals and productive professional goals.
In most cases, conflict between American “Empowerment” style/strategies of management by new Managers being impose to “Authoritative” staff culture mostly backfires and see this style as weak and bothersome by staff members whom are used to merely follow to a dominating manager culture.
Similar book on cultural adapation is Livermore’s The Cultural Intelligence Difference, which introduces Cultural Qoutient (CQ), imbibing also the Intelligent Qoutient (IQ) and Emotional Qoutient (EQ). This book is more focused developing CQ with more practical ways especially from travelling from one culture to another.
