Diverse Workforce


Geert Hofstede started an important study of national cultures according to four dimensions and a fifth dimension was added later: 

 Power distance 

Individualism vs collectivism 

Masculinity vs femininity 

Uncertainty avoidance and long vs short term orientation

Myers-Briggs identifies personality types according to the way individuals approach information and decisions. We can combine these tools to better understand international leadership. Review the following article: Leadership Affected by Culture 

In the article the author uses examples of the United States, Mexico, and India to illustrate the importance of culture in leadership and in creating corporate culture.


How can using these tools help a leader with a diverse workforce create a better working environment culture? Use the examples in the article or use your own examples in applying the models from Hofstede or Myers-Briggs.
