1.1 Devotion: Biblical Perspective

 ListenReadSpeaker webReader: ListenFocus

Getting Started

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Romans 12:2 (New International Version)

So often, we are quick to judge our neighbors and others around us. Today’s society has allowed us to forget what Christ has taught us: to love thy neighbor. Romans 12:2 is a blueprint that is set forth to show us how each one of us should transform our character and renew our mind. The biblical perspective recognizes the active opposition of a personal adversary. In the business world, we diversify ourselves with others from all walks of life, not knowing that God has placed each of us together for the common good. Thinking back on your workplace, how do you engage with others from other backgrounds? Do you place judgment on others? Do you reflect your views on social media and other blogging components? Is this right?

Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:

  • Articulate the importance of integrating a Christian worldview with global business practice.



  1. Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
  2. Take time to reflect on Romans 12:2. 
  3. Consider the following question:
    1. How does this verse impact you in matters of faith in the workplace?
  4. Post your answer in the discussion thread by the end of the workshop.

For this discussion, you will watch a 10-minute video in which researcher Geert Hofstede explains “power distance,” which is one of six dimensions of national culture that were described in his formative research on culture.

1.3 Assignment: PowerPoint Presentation


Getting Started

In this assignment, you will read a Harvard Business Review article and view a five-minute video about a transcultural leader, former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, Inc, Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi. She is considered one of the most highly influential CEOs in the world and was for five consecutive years at the very top of the list of the 50 most powerful women prepared by Fortune magazine. Nooyi was born in Chennai, India. She was heavily influenced by her stay-at-home mother, Shantha Krishnamoorthy, whom she considered her first management teacher in her life. Though she had a conservative South Indian upbringing, there were many contrasting influences in Nooyi’s life. Observers noted that though she belonged to a Hindu home, she went to a Roman Catholic School. Her mother would often ask her, “How would you change the world?” (Taneja, 2017).

This profile illustrates how to synthesize information and gain a sense of the character of a society from which implications may be drawn about how to manage more effectively in that society.
  5. The 10- to 12-slide presentation should also include the answers to the following questions:
    1. What is the PDI (power distance index) for India compared to America? The difference between the two PDIs indicates what information for global managers?
    2. What were the factors that shaped Indra Nooyi as a leader?
    3. If PepsiCo were headquartered in India, how might Nooyi lead her employees in India based on the PDI of this country in comparison to America?
