Ann Marie Luce: Developing cultural intelligence
Ann Marie Luce

“It’s your job to adapt and change and be flexible based on what their cultural norms are, not necessarily what yours are. Those are pieces I learned along the way through my research and experience. How to be a better leader, how to have a deeper understanding of culture, and its impact on my leadership.”

Dr. Ann Marie Luce
