Product Description

Review

"Though not directly concerning education, the text allows students to develop intercultural intelligence that can be applied to any field." (Roger W. Wiemers, Ed.D. Adoption Reply Card 2009-05-01)

"This text is an asset to any researcher or student of leadership who wishes to advance his or her understanding of the relationship between cultural competency and leadership. This book provides new perspectives on measuring intercultural competencies, assessing leadership within a multicultural context, and numerous examples of how organizations can lead in an evolving multicultural world."

(Douglas Crawford 2009-08-26)

Contemporary Leadership and Intercultural Competence: Exploring the Cross-Cultural Dynamics Within Organizations 30 Dec. 2008
By D. Domingo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I often have discussions with colleagues about who the new voices are in leadership theory, particularly the field of global leadership. Who will expand upon the work of Hofstede, Trompenaars, Hampden-Turner, Adler, and the GLOBE team and emerge as one of the new standard-bearers in the field? I believe that this book showcases some of the new and exciting concepts in the study of culture and leadership and should be a welcome addition to the library of superb books on cross-cultural leadership that have been released over the last 10 years.

The book is really divided into two parts: a series of chapters that discuss the evolving role of diversity in organizations and chapters that provide details (down to the validity and reliability) of cultural instruments. Most of the chapters are strong, particularly those that address the basics of culture, multicultural vision, training, HR, culture and the law, and communication/conflict.

The book also has a god mix of veteran contributors and newcomers to the field. Michael Dukakis (a name that I hadn¹t heard in years) starts things off with a nice commentary about life as a Greek American. Many of the people from the Intercultural Communication Institute in Portland wrote solid pieces that drive the theory home.

If I have one criticism of the book, it¹s that Moodian at times seems to be trying to do too much and trying to address too may issues in 300 pages. Perhaps the book should have been longer or maybe he should have cut the number of chapters down.

Overall, I recommend reading this book. It compliments Northouse¹s book on leadership theory and some of the books that have been released on cultural intelligence.

Contemporary Leadership and Intercultural Competence 29 Dec. 2008
By Janet Ahmed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an exceptional book that I highly recommend. Two chapters that I
particularly enjoyed were ³The Legal Aspects of Cross-Cultural Leadership
and Trade² and ³Designing Programs for Culture Learning.² My favorite
feature of this book is the heavy emphasis on intercultural communication,
and some of the contributing chapter authors are my favorite scholars in
this field. A great read.

I thought that the author tied in a lot of stories that helped make the material stick better. It was a good read and I am glad my professor assigned it.

Great read for leaders that want to grow. This book stretches leadership beyond culture to encompass all people. Challenging but worth it.
