Dancing Between Cultures


Our world is increasingly multicultural. Our coaching and ministry clientele continue to become more diverse.  How are you adapting your coaching and conversational skills to reflect these 21st century realities? what is your cultural intelligence quotient as you come alongside others who don’t share your cultural values and background?  Great coaching skills are not enough to bridge the culture gap!  We all need cultural intelligence expressed in knowledge, drive, strategy and action to broaden our effectiveness with others and deepen our experience of God. To see real transformation happen through your ministry, you need to gain practical skills that result in culturally intelligent conversations. 

Written by a master coach and trainer with over 15 years experience coaching and training leaders cross-culturally, Dancing between Cultures is your guidebook to effective culturally intelligent conversations.

There's always more to learn about culturally intelligent coaching!  You'll find extra articles and resources, a downloadable Cultural Values Chart to use with your clients, recordings of actual coaching conversations (coming soon!), and links to training opportunities.  Check out our blog, and share your own stories about cross-cultural coaching in ministry and mission. 



“Dancing Between Cultures is an engaging, practical, inspiring tool that takes the theory and research on cultural intelligence and makes it highly accessible to ministry coaches. Tina Stoltzfus Horst brings her extensive, first-hand experience coaching cross-culturally to offer a resource I look forward to recommending broadly.”
     ➤ Dr. David Livermore, thought leader on cultural intelligence


“Dancing Between Cultures is a journey extraordinaire. The author creates a thorough, thought-provoking, and invaluable guidebook that is well structured and immediately applicable. It’s a highly engaging, readable textbook, but has the heart and passion to not just focus on skills, but also the character and sustainability of a coach. I will be recommending this book for years to come!"

Dancing between Cultures is a complete manual on cultural dynamics as they relate to coaching. The author explains each dynamic, but more importantly how they matter to the coaching relationship. Dancing between Cultures fills a much needed gap in the Christian coach’s library.
