From the Back Cover:

Praise for Cultural Agility

"Any of us who travel outside our home country has experienced firsthand the need to be culturally agile. Caligiuri has done a marvelous job culling research, offering insights, and creating tools that will help us become more personally culturally agile. The twelve competencies give us a standard to prepare for new cultural experiences. Her work goes further to show how companies craft management practices to build a pipeline of agile global professionals. The book has great examples and applicable tools that any business or HR leader will adapt to ensure a stable supply of culturally agile global professionals."

Dave Ulrich, Ph.D., professor of business, University of Michigan; partner, The RBL Group; author, HR Transformation: Building Human Resources from the Outside In

"Cultural Agility masterfully illustrates the complex cognitive blend of intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies needed to navigate successfully in cross–cultural contexts. From an overview of the requisite personality traits and skills, to recruiting and selection approaches, to development and training strategies, this work is an invaluable guide for organizational leaders whose success depends on intercultural competence."

Allison S. Greene–Sands, Ph.D., associate director for culture, Defense Language and National Security Education Office

"A must–read for leaders at all levels. Cultural Agility makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the importance of cultural context as a key determinant of the success of global leaders and their organizations. Context matters and to successfully compete in today′s global economy, cultural context matters a lot."

Charles G. Tharp, Ph.D., CEO, Center On Executive Compensation; executive vice president, HR Policy Association

"Every sector whether international development, sport, government, military, or business is affected by globalization and the complexities it has created. This book is a must–read for organizational leaders wanting to ready a workforce able to successfully navigate these challenges."

Nicholas Craw, past director, Peace Corps; president and CEO, Automobile Competition Committee for the United States

"Caligiuri has captured the true essence of cultural competence. She provides practical solutions and ideas on how to implement practices and tools within an organization to develop global leaders!"

Karen Bicking, global manager, international development programs, Johnson & Johnson
