Leaders today must have the savvy and flexibility to function in a multicultural context, with sensitivity to local customs, ideas, and taboos.
Some techniques that work well in one culture may be offensive in another. Mastering interpersonal skills and conversational subtleties can be difficult. Here, at last, is a guidebook for understanding and reaching people of all cultures.
The 15 authors represent several hundred years of multicultural leadership experience. There are individual chapters on leadership techniques in an Asian context, in African culture, among Hispanics, African-Americans, and Native Americans. The book includes interviews with Alvin Kibble, Manuel Vasquez, Mardian Blair, Calvin Rock, B. Lyn Behrens, Hyveth Williams, Neal Wilson, and Ralph Watts.
This book will help you see through other eyes and suggest new ways to reach the hearts of those who do not think like you do.
