Author Philippe Rosinski introduces an innovative form of coaching to meet the demands of today's diverse and international workplace: Coaching Across Cultures: New Tools for Leveraging National, Corporate and Professional Differences.

With plenty of real-life examples and activities, Rosinski offers new approaches to practical and effective coaching methods to help you push beyond the confines of your own culture's norms when working with clients or coaching a team. Written for coaches, executives and managers, Coaching Across Cultures demonstrates how one can discover creative solutions to problems and leverage cultural differences, turning powerful ideas into action to facilitate the highest performance possible.
