Why I Created This Course

In 2013 I wrote the book Global Dexterity and since then I’ve conducted training and speaking about Global Dexterity at companies such as Walmart, Reebok, Iron Mountain, Alcatel-Lucent, Standard Charter Bank, MetLife, McKinsey and many others. I’ve created an MBA class on the topic and have created and run a successful Global Dexterity Train the Trainer Program to certify professional trainers, coaches, and consultants in the Global Dexterity Method.   

What has been missing until now has been an online program to provide working professionals and students direct and immediate access to the Global Dexterity framework and tools so that they could improve their global and intercultural effectiveness immediately in their everyday lives. And that’s exactly why I created this course. 

What does this course cover?

  • An introduction to Global Dexterity 
  • The basics of learning to diagnose the “cultural code” in a new culture and in your own 
  • The basics of learning to diagnose your own personal default “cultural code
  • How to identify and manage the psychological roadblocks you may face in stepping outside your cultural comfort zone
  • How to overcome these cultural barriers by customizing your behavior and mindset

It’s about “fitting in” without “giving in” – learning to adapt your behavior to the new cultural rules, but doing so in a way that’s within your own personal comfort zone.

What is Global Dexterity?

Global dexterity is the ability to successfully adapt your behavior in a foreign culture without losing yourself in the process. It’s about “fitting in” without “giving in” – learning to adapt your behavior to the new cultural rules, but doing so in a way that’s within your own personal comfort zone. 


Why does Global Dexterity matter?

In today’s global economy we’re constantly in situations where we need to change how we act to be effective at our jobs. This is true when giving or receiving performance feedback; when asserting our voice in a meeting; when conducting a performance review, delivering bad news, motivating and leading others, forging relationships through “small talk” and the list goes on and on.

All these situations vary across cultures and to be effective at your job, you need to learn how to do them well in the culture you’re working in. But that’s only half the battle because in many cases the way that you need to act to be effective conflicts with what’s natural and comfortable for you. And that’s the real challenge of developing global dexterity: learning to adapt but not feeling like you’re losing yourself in the process.
