Dynamic leaders have a great sense of awareness, and they continually increase their awareness of self and others. They build on their cultural competencies by understanding the impact of culture on communication, engagement and performance. They help create culturally competent organizations.

These leaders are excited about differences and similarities because they see the potential to leverage strengths and create teams that think more broadly and achieve outstanding results through collaboration and energy. They have the energy to lead others by helping to envision, empower and embrace the uniqueness of the individuals on their teams. They help others achieve success and they help build environments that are inclusive and enable others to give their best. They strive to create organizations that encourage 100% from everyone 100% of the time.

They do much more than manage the multicultural diversity of their teams because they empower the individuals through inclusive behavior that encourages engagement and contribution. They welcome and encourage multiple perspectives because they believe that together we can create a more productive and powerful outcome. Inclusion drives performance, which equals success.

Dynamic leaders are aware of their own thoughts and behaviors. They welcome fresh ways to approach situations that others perceive as problems because they see them as opportunities. They explore their own bias and understand the impact of bias on others, performance and the organization.
