This course explores factors that leaders may encounter in multicultural settings, specifically the impact that cultural values, beliefs and worldviews have on leadership definitions, leadership styles, communications, authority and accountability dynamics, decision making procedures, conflict management and ethics. Attention is given to Biblical input (for faith-based organizations) when wrestling with the multicultural aspects as well as offering the opportunity to formulate practical cultural expressions when responding to conflicting assumptions and allegiances. Other similar suggestions may result from in-class discussions and from the readings. A student who has taken this course and its prerequisites will be better able to lead a team composed of people who have a variety of cultural backgrounds.
