    A Primer for 21st Century Leaders

    "Diversity: Leaders not Labels" is a very well-thought out book by Stedman Graham. As a guy who, after a career as a pro basketball player, had to recreate himself as a businessman, Graham seems to have a natural intuition for the business world of the 21st century. And he shares a lot of that with this book. He even shares more to budding business people both young and old as he gives speeches across the country. Hopefully, his appearance at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on July 23 will be as plain-spoken and enlightening as his latest work. By focusing on different groups, Graham works toward his thesis that it's our differences that make us stronger. And recognizing those differences in ourselves and others is how American companies will succeed in this new century.

    Recommended Reading for Students, Teachers, Small Business Owners and Large Corporations and Diversity Groups

    Better than many multicultural classes I was required to take during my college career, Stedman Graham believes an ethnic person should not have to put aside their culture and multicultural experiences in order to better conform to society and to become more successful. In this book, he teaches others how to break free from stereotypical labels in order to most effectively reach their full potential in life and to live a life of tolerance. He shows us that developing leaders rather than accepting labels is the best way to protect a diverse culture. Each chapter discusses a different multicultural group, and includes an excellent historical timeline throughout each chapter outlining a group's hardships and successes, with thought-provoking discussion questions at the end of each chapter. I recommend this book for use in the college and high school classrooms, in small and large corporations as discussions about race and equality between workers and for families of all variations.

    Learn How to Work with Diverse Cultures with Graham's Book

    Authentic anecdotes of his own life and experience, Stedman Graham, not only recognizes diversity in our world, but says one should not have to dismiss his culture and experience to meld into someone else's expectations. As a world traveler and one who enjoys learning about diverse cultures, people and traditions, I found this book better than the diversity classes I took in college. We all want to be respected and acknowledged for the obstacles and successes we have experienced in our lives; why would we want to be anything else but ourselves? A must read for those in the corporate world, education - both students and faculty, and everyone in between who can learn about different cultures and how to better the relationship in our diverse communities throughout the world.
