In this assignment, reflect on a leader (MICHELLE HOWARD) who you believe is effective in managing a multicultural organization and is creating a culturally synergistic work setting.
(MICHELLE HOWARD)The individual you select should be someone you can readily research and gather information about. The individual can be a past or present Fortune 500 executive, a political figure, or someone from within your own organization. It’s your choice! The only stipulation is that this individual must manage a multicultural work group and must have adopted a leadership approach that creates cultural synergy.
After you have selected someone that you believe meets these requirements, write a 10 page paper that addresses the following:
1. Describe the leader and the organization.
2. Discuss why this leader is effective in a multicultural setting. Be specific: What exactly has this leader done to create cultural synergy?
3. Based on what you have learned about managing diversity, what more can this leader and/or the organization do to enhance cultural synergy?
A well-written paper will discuss the strategies and techniques the leader used to develop cultural synergy within his or her work group, department, or organization. And, because there is always more that can be done, what else do you recommend?
An A paper will display these qualities:
1. Meets expectations for content and purpose of the assignment.
