ssignment 3: Helping an International Friend Develop as a Team Leader
Due Week 9 and worth 240 points

Your  company has just hired your foreign friend to work in a  middle-management position. Since you have lived in the United States  for many years, your friend believes that you understand job coaching  for a traditional American company. She wants to work with you and has  many questions—some of which concern the manner in which cultural  nuances related to religious customs, verbal and nonverbal  communication, etc. may affect leadership roles.

Write a five to seven (5-7) page paper in which you:

  1. Recommend whether or not your friend should insert herself as a coach from the beginning. Provide a rationale for your response.
  2. Determine  two (2) conflicts that could possibly arise as a result of asking  people to work on days of religious significance. Propose concrete  solutions for these two (2) possible conflicts.
  3. Determine  whether or not cultural quirks could restrain the foreign manager from  expressing his or her ideas readily. Provide a rationale for your  response.
  4. Determine two (2) actions that you can take in order  to prepare yourself and your friend to become multicultural leaders.  Provide two (2) examples to support your response.
  5. Predict two  (2) major conflicts that may arise out of nonverbal communication  misunderstandings (e.g., words misinterpreted, hand gestures, looks,  shoulder shrugs, names of objects, etc.). Suggest two (2) actions that  your friend could take in order to diffuse these types of  misunderstandings and thus make the workplace more harmonious. Justify  your response.
  6. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia does not qualify as an academic resource.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be  typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with  one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA  or school-specific format.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the  assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title,  and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in  the required assignment page length.
