From the Preface :
How This Book Can Change Your Life
This book can do more for you than just provide information about changes in the multicultural workplace. It provides tools for you to change your life-if you to choose to raise your awareness, change limiting beliefs, and adopt new success strategies. Transformation, or lasting change, can only take place at the level of belief, so this book is designed to help you open up your worldview-and therefore transform it. Such transformation will open up richer relationships with people who hold quite different worldviews.
Is This Book For You?
This book is for you if you see yourself as a workplace leader-now or in the future-whether you take a leadership role as the new member of a work team, the head of an organization, or somewhere in between. This book is for you if you're ready to develop the people power and people skills you need for managing diversity. In this book you'll get the information you need to make informed choices-as well as the processes for broadening your viewpoints and integrating new success skills into your daily interactions.
