Other courses teach people about cultural differences. But this course teaches people how to adapt and adjust their behavior in a new culture in light of these differences.

What does it mean to be a global worker and a true “citizen of the world” today?

In reality, it means you are able to adapt your behavior to conform to new cultural contexts without losing your 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.

The Global Dexterity Train the Trainer Program offers coaches, trainers and teachers the tools that they need to help clients and students adapt behavior to new cultural contexts without losing themselves in the process. Based on more than a decade of research, teaching, and consulting with managers and executives around the world, this book reveals an approach to adapting while feeling comfortable—an essential skill that enables you to switch behaviors and overcome the emotional and psychological challenges of doing so.

    I chose to work with Andy and follow the Global Dexterity training because I found his book to be such a valuable resource for the intercultural awareness trainings I give at ITER and other organizations. When I reached out to him about his book, he was so approachable and helpful that he offered me the opportunity to join the training with a small group of great people. The Global Dexterity method navigates the balance between offering very practical tools to help participants analyse their situation and create self-awareness, combined with a sensitivity to the various psychological barriers we come across when collaborating with different cultures. It is a great mix for helping people not only integrate more successfully, but to attain personal growth as well. The exercises and discussions have helped me further develop my skills as a trainer in intercultural awareness – I look forward to giving my next workshop integrating the new tools and information Andy has so generously shared during the training. He has been an open and very attentive trainer on a subject he knows through and through.

    Global Dexterity is the one method that I find myself using again and again. The concepts are straightforward enough that I can introduce them quickly to audiences of various sizes and abilities, but robust enough that my clients experience validation, empowerment, and genuine growth and transformation as they work through them. Global Dexterity is equally suited for everyone I serve, from business executives, global team leaders, international students, expat partners, entrepreneurs, and refugees, and whenever I feature it in my training or coaching, this is the part that clients always say they remember.
