Leading Culturally Diverse Workplaces (G)  

Instructors: Dr. Paulette Laubsch

With increased globalization, different cultures, beliefs, and values become important aspects that the organization’s leadership must understand and address.  Cultural differences may result in conflict or ineffective and inefficient workgroups and teams.  Leaders who understand their own behaviors and beliefs are better able to acknowledge and embrace cultural differences and understand the implications of the global market and human capital strategies.  This course will explore the dimensions of diversity, cross-cultural models, assessment tools, and best practices to improve cross-cultural relationships.  Effective team building and the impact of team building activities on culturally diverse populations will be discussed.  In addition to assigned readings and student projects, this course will include an international experience.
