Globalization and the increasingly international nature of business is changing the face of leadership. More and more people from many different backgrounds, age groups, and cultures are stepping into management positions than ever before.
Bringing people together from a wide variety of different backgrounds creates tremendous opportunities for organizations, but also some challenges. Organizations can benefit from the new perspectives and possibilities that diversity brings if they are able to unite people with a common set of values and goals. If not, the result is misalignment and disorganized inefficiencies as people go off in different direction-based on their own individual backgrounds.
