Answer preview

The contemporary work environment is characterized by the presence of colleagues from diverse cultural backgrounds (Heinen et al., 2019). Due to this, failure to recognize and understand these cultural differences can adversely affect my leadership. To prevent this from happening, I will have to interact with people from different cultures. Doing this with an open mind will allow me to improve my cultural competency, increasing my effectiveness when leading a diverse team (Heinen et al., 2019). Another improvement area deals with becoming an effective role model. Leaders are expected to serve as examples to their followers through their words and actions. By doing this, a leader can inspire and motivate their followers to behave in the manner a leader would like them to (Heinen et al., 2019). The best way to make improvements will be to interact with experienced and successful leaders. Doing this will enable me to understand the nuances of what is required to set an example for my team members.
