Using a grounded theory approach, the authors sought to understand the effects of international adjustment after short-term business trips on the process of developing a global mindset. Categories that emerged were personal characteristics, cognitive shifts and relationship building, to name a few. A process model identifies cognitive shifts as the core phenomenon with an outcome of global mindset. Global mindset is a reciprocal variable that accelerates adjustment. Implications and future directions are discussed.
