To say we live in a multicultural society is a gross understatement. We can no longer think about what might come in the future; it is already on our doorstep. Additionally, we cannot think about what we will do when it happens. Clearly, multiculturalism has been here for a long time.
If we are not knowledgeable about or preparing more fervently to address it, we are way behind.
The challenge is determining how we can best approach leading within a multicultural context. A few considerations:
- Stop procrastinating and gain a better understanding of multiculturalism. Trying to deny or ignore that it exists will only create greater problems.
- Get immersed in developing relationships across those cultural boundaries. Cultural boundaries exist everywhere, not just geographically.
- Remember, we are participating in a small part of what God has done and continues to do. Who knows but we are here for such a time as this.
The depth of the subject far exceeds the expectations of one post. However, the subject is essential for the present and future understanding of leadership.
