From The Publisher:
Complete with contributions from the author himself, The Future of Leadership presents nineteen original chapters by a vanguard of celebrated business thinkers who are joined by some fast-emerging stars. This seminal work contains their collective wisdom and offers candid speculations on the future of leadership and the new economy. No other book on the topic offers the caliber of contributors and the range of thinking included here. Leadership gurus such as Charles Handy, Tom Peters, Edward Lawler, Jim Kouzes, and Barry Posner, along with some young Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, present their valuable insights into the challenges leaders will face as the new millennium unfolds. They examine an array of timely questions about leadership such as: Why do we tolerate bad leaders? Why is leadership everyone's business? And how does the new economy influence leadership? It's a stimulating and provocative read that's bound to challenge and inform your own views about the nature and future of leadership.
