For years, Ricardo González has used his own unique approach to managing multiculturalism in the workplace to help bridge the gap between Latinos and non-Latinos and promote productive and successful relationships in the roofing industry and beyond. Along the way he developed six stages that provide the framework for becoming a cultural master — someone who has broken through the barriers that arise when managing and leading people from various ethnicities and cultures.
He’s compiled them in his new book The 6 Stages of Cultural Mastery, where he provides specific and achievable goals that can help leaders transform themselves, and in turn, more effectively lead employees to success. And he’s shared this closer look exclusively with RC readers. — Art Aisner
