In today's Global Marketplace, if you put yourself in a position to understand another person's cultural perspective then you have the basis for developing a relationship to achieve objectives. One of the big benefits of understanding another culture is that it gives us greater insight about how we operate in the world. The global economy is about understanding each other, which is the basis for anything you want to accomplish.
Leadership is about communicating from the heart with compassion and consideration for the emotional and professional well being of all members of the organization. Most people have a fundamental desire to be acknowledged for their performance and respected for their opinions. The Global Economy and Multi-Cultural Workplace today requires each manager to perfect their inter-personal communication skills. An awareness of what we are communicating on a verbal and non-verbal level moment - to - moment reinforces responsiveness to our constantly changing world. Communication that reinforces a sense of both vision and inspiration leads to a more productive and successful organization.
