Although there is no shortage of information about workplace entry-and-acceptance issues for Black managers, the literature is fairly sparse in documenting the unique experiences that Black leaders must work through in daily corporate life — such as hiding part of their identity at work, being responsible for the progress of other Black managers, and sorting out whether race or personality is a factor in a poor working relationship.

This book, based on many years experience of dealing with and research on the issues of Black managers, shows 6 areas in which the leadership experience is different for Black leaders and white leaders: taking responsibility for others, focusing on identity, mentoring, being politically savvy, understanding the impact of perception about race and gender, and using networking strategies.

It includes specific actions, for both Black managers and those who work with them, to use these 6 areas to strengthen individual and organizational relationships.
