Everywhere is Home

house-homeIn the 21st century, one tricky aspect of leadership is culture. Like it or not, every leader in this era ought to develop a measure of cultural sensitivity, otherwise effectiveness could be jeopardized.

Between my wife and I, we currently have three very different cultures playing out (we envisage more) and we’re emotionally invested in all. Also, as I advance in my career, the cultural cocktail increases in flavor.

Respect for the cultural dimension of leadership is vital. Now, organizations are increasingly multi-cultural and families have numerous nations in the mix. It’s common for people to be deeply connected to multiple locations. This is a fact in 21st century leadership.

I’m a global citizen. Just like cash, I’m accepted everywhere:-) This position has increased my leadership effectiveness. I’m functional and able to find happiness in every culture. For leaders to succeed in the connection economy, it would be helpful to appreciate other cultures. Learn to value the beauty of difference.
