This Assignment will assess your knowledge based on the following outcomes:
GM503-3: Apply cultural literacy in personal and professional environments.
PC-4.3: Apply concepts of multiculturalism and diversity to become an agent of change.
Kouzes and Posner (2017) state that, â??People donâ??t care about how much you know until they know
how much you care for them. In other words, they believe that you want to ensure that they are safe
and secure, feel supported and valued�� (p.286). There are many different ways to promote this type
of celebratory culture. You have been reading about and working with best practices on how leaders
need to be aware of follower needs. In the case of creating community, the leader needs to be aware
of how celebrations are conducted according to cultural beliefs. This is especially important when
workplaces are composed of many cultures as they are in the contemporary world. In this paper, you
will conduct research on this topic in order to describe how your own cultural literacy in personal and
professional environments can be applied as you become a more effective leader of change.
Using the information from your readings, additional research, and personal experience, compose a 4â??
5-pages (1,200 words) APA 6th edition compliant paper that covers the following:
