Leading a productive, innovative, quality minded multigenerational, multicultural and diverse team in an evolving workplace and marketplace is far more complex than ever before.  This is a tough job for even the most talented and seasoned leader.  Smart organizations know that increasing cultural competencies of their people drives business results.
