Cultural leadership is a leadership proxy that is rooted in community, family, and cultural identity.
To explore culturally influenced leadership means exploring:
- The full spectrum of a leader's familial and neighborhood experiences;
- The various forms of non-traditional knowledge that has taught a leader how to succeed and how to make a difference
- The core values, traditions, politics of survival, and inherited folkways that guide a leader's sense of purpose and that teach a leader how to navigate society.
