Identifies nine core leadership principles common to Latino, African American, and American Indian cultures Incorporates these principles into a multicultural leadership model that is uniquely suited to our changing demographics Combines personal reflections, interviews with community leaders, historical background, and contemporary case examples One of America?s historic strengths has been our ability to incorporate aspects from many different cultures to create a stronger whole. Our music, literature, language, architecture, food, fashion, and more have all benefitted. But leadership approaches have remained distressingly Eurocentric. Juana Bordas set out to change this in the first edition of this influential book. She showed that incorporating Latino, African American, and American Indian approaches to leadership into the mainstream can strengthen leadership practices and better inspire today?s ethnically rich workforce. This message has only become more urgent.
