About this book

This book analyzes the emerging concept of diversity intelligence, which values the differences in employees without attempting to make everyone alike. Organization leaders need diversity intelligence to better interact with the changing demographics in America and the global economy, by embracing differences as strengths rather than weaknesses. Without a clear understanding of diversity, leaders are not fully equipped to realize organizational goals through all employees.

The author highlights the importance of integrating diversity intelligence into leadership and career development plans alongside intellectual intelligence, emotional intelligence, and cultural intelligence. In order to fully motivate diverse individuals, leaders must first be able to recognize differences between themselves and others without it being an obstacle to performance. This book is a window into how leaders can reflect on their actions and behaviors to effectively implement new strategies, and is an essential read for HR researchers, professionals, consultants, and managers of global operating companies.

Reviews

“The book, Diversity Intelligence: Integrating Diversity Intelligence … was an enjoyable read. … I strongly believe that this book may be a very handy tool for diversity trainers, HR managers and OD practitioners in designing diversity training programs. It may also be used as a training material in diversity training programs. … This book can also be used as a textbook in the diversity management courses designed for MBA or other equivalent graduate/post-graduate programs.” (Satish Pandey, European Journal of Training and Development, Vol. 42 (5-6), 2018)​
