Synopses & Reviews
Managers, supervisors, and CEOs will welcome this new book. It deals head-on with an emerging global reality: culturally diverse people of both genders in the workplace. The new business environment demands that employees be selected, evaluated, and promoted on the basis of performance and competency, regardless of sex, race, religion, or place of origin. Affirmative action is now aimed at developing human potential, and Transcultural Leadership shows you how to effectively achieve this in your workplace. The concepts presented here can be applied universally. Diversity in business is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, and the key concepts for successful management of international companies are true throughout the world. The latest addition to Gulf Publishing Company's Managing Cultural Differences series, this breakthrough book fills a gap in management education and development. It is a practical manual designed to teach and encourage managers to lead and strengthen the human resources of any organization.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 246-252) and index.
