Corporate Leadership A study of Cultural Diversity Skills in growing in the corporate world
Globalisation has significantly added to diversity in the workplace, requiring corporate leaders to acquire new skills to negotiate and operate in international environments. This is very much true in the case of multinational corporations where relationships can be complex and mono cultural corporate leadership styles can fuel conflict. Awareness of cultural diversity informs the way corporate leaders define their roles and responsibilities and requires them to carefully apply themselves for effective performance of their corporate. The increase in the workforce diversity and the results from this study seem to indicate, it is also important for corporate leaders to identify shared values, which serve as a foundation for initiating and maintaining productive and positive working relationships by creating commitment, enthusiasm and drive.
