Dr Elisabeth Marx has written an invaluable self-assessment guide to succeeding in international work--according to the author, one of the most stimulating and positive career experiences. A Director of the worldwide executive search company, Norman Broadbent International, where she focuses on the search for, and psychological development of, international executives, Dr Marx argues that culture shock, or 'the experience of foreignness' has become the critical factor for success in today's global business environment.
Focusing on the culture-shock triangle, a new model which shows you how to behave and think differently and balance your emotions, the book uses case studies to highlight means of coping with the highs and lows, in order to retain a sense of your own identity while achieving an international identity. As well as expert advice for both singles and working partners living overseas, helping children adapt to a different culture, relocation checklists, medical issues in tropical countries and returning home, there's also guidance for companies selecting and looking after international executives.
While international business leaders share their views on the subject and offer inspirational nuggets, the final chapter is a self-assessment exercise looking at the motivation, expectations and self-reliance necessary for successful global work whether abroad, at home in an international company or working as part of a cross-functional team in cyberspace.--Carey Green
Effective managers are not born but made, according to the philosophy behind this self-help guide to succeeding in today's world of international business. Marx outlines the ways in which culture shock affects your emotions, thinking style and social skills, and suggests how to think differently and adapt to change. (Kirkus UK)
