The phrase ‘the only constant is change’ has been used and re-used all over the world. However, its authenticity and reality have not lost their value. It’s true, the only constant is change. This statement holds true for everything in life, especially business.

Leading an international team poses all kinds of challenges- cultural clashes often being one of the most prominent ones. Combining strong personal and interpersonal capabilities with cross cultural intelligence is one way to overcome such cultural differences. This might not always be enough to reach high competency in driving organizational effectiveness. Being consciously aware of how you perceive things makes one aware of themselves, which can be a hard task. Nobody is truly independent of cultural bias. Personally for me, it has been encouraging to learn and grow in this way.

How do you prepare for challenging conversations? Some people practice what they are going to say repeatedly, some take notes, and others even power pose in the mirror. Though all of these are viable strategies, do they falter in the face of racism?
