Book Description

March 2, 2005 0761988602 978-0761988601 1
Leadership in a Diverse and Multicultural Environment provides leaders with the tools necessary to effectively interact with all individuals. Although much of the research related to multiculturalism has focused on expatriates and international assignments, the book also focuses on leaders in domestic organizations, as they can benefit from developing their own multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills. Effective leaders can shape the culture of their organization to be accepting of individuals from all races, ethnicities, religions, and genders with a minimum of misunderstandings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too little for too much October 10, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was shocked to see how tiny this book is, both in size and content, especially given the hefty price tag of $50! It is a bit outdated, as many of the studies are from the 90's. In this evolving field, more contemporary studies are important. And that price tag? Why so expensive? It was a terrific disappointment. Perhaps it would have been less so, were the price a more reasonable one. Save your money and find this information online.
