Discussion Topic: What
steps are today’s organizations taking to promote diversity, and are these
efforts effective. If you have ever participated in a diversity management
training program, what effects did it have on you? In what ways, if any, did
your attitudes or behaviors change? If you have never participated in a
diversity management program, how do you think you would react to being in one?
Do you think you would find it enjoyable? Useful? What challenges to
effectiveness, if any, do you suspect you might encounter?
TASK #1 – Complete a Mini Cross-Cultural Leadership Case Problem
You work for a mid-size company that has recently merged with a larger,
international organization. As part of the merger, you will now be sharing
office space with employees from this larger company and, over a period of six
months, the two groups will be collapsed into one large team. Although this has
been a friendly merger, current management is concerned about complications that
might arise. You have been asked to put together an action plan for ensuring a
smooth transition in your department, which you will continue to lead after the
merger is complete.
Fully answer the following case questions:
1. What would you do? Where
would you begin?
2. What thoughts do you have
about the likely events of the next six months?
3. How might your personal
values play a role in the process?
4. What would your action
plan look like?
TASK #2: – Create Your Own Theory
Throughout this course, we have stressed the idea that leadership is in
the eye of the beholder; that is, we all form our own views on what leadership
is and how it is practiced most effectively. Chapter 14 in particular has
highlighted the idea that meaning is socially and individually constructed,
based in large part on our formative experiences and continually refined through
our interpretation of the events we experience each day.
Fully answer the following questions:
1. What are some of the
different definitions and perspectives of cross-cultural leadership that are
offered in Chapter 14 that speak to you most?
2. What are some of your
thoughts about culture and leaders?
Let’s move these ideas into a business context. In the opening
Mini-Cross-Cultural Leadership Case, you were paced in the position leading a
merger of people and cultures between two departments that previously had worked
in isolation. In this situation,
1.What would your strengths
and weaknesses be as a leader attempting to facilitate this change?
2. What would your priorities
be and around which potential issues would your seek support and advice?
