What is Global Leadership?: 10 Key Behaviors that Define Great Global Leaders
Recent financial, economic, and political turbulence has reconfirmed the importance of leadership in distinguishing global winners from global losers. Extreme diversity of outcomes among otherwise powerful playersâ??banks, companies, investors, and even countriesâ??is hard to explain any other way. This volume provides an authoritative, engaging and readable primer on global leadership to help explain the past and gain a sharper perspective on the future.
Well done! What I like about this book is the emphasis on the importance of the soft side of global leadership.―Fons Trompenaars, co-author of Riding the Waves of Culture and world authority on cross-cultural management
Understanding what a global leader is, and what they do, is becoming increasingly urgent. This book does a great job of answering these questions, combining hard science with organizational research and case studies. An excellent resource for anyone trying to select, develop, or work with global leaders in any way.
