3. Think about someone you would say is not a good leader what traits make them so!
4. One of the main factors in 21st Century leadership is to recognize change, recognize culture, and recognize how you were led may not be the way to lead today!

6. We must recognize cultural differences.  Please watch the below videos from Dr. Edwin Nichols who I had the privilege to take a 3 day workshop from this man.  He received a degree in the 60s on cultural diversity and was told in the United States it wasn't needed, so he moved from America to experience life with the various cultures (i.e. Asia, Africa, Hispanic/Latino, Europe, and Native America) then after companies were failing with diversity he was greatly sought after about his cultural diversity wisdom.
