Edited by Frances Hesselbein and Marshall Goldsmith
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
The Leader of the Future 2 follows in the footsteps of the international bestseller The Leader of the Future, which has sold hundreds of thousands of copies, been translated into twenty-eight languages, and is one of the most widely distributed collections on leadership to date.
In twenty-seven inspiring and insightful essays, this book celebrates the wisdom of some of the most recognized thought leaders of our day who share their unique visions of leadership for the future. Our post-9/11 world presents new and unexpected challenges for present and future leaders, and the articles in this book reaffirm, reconsider, and expand on the basic principles and values of leadership as they apply to emerging and unforeseen challenges, opportunities, and trends. This diverse group of authors speaks to all of us—inspiring, guiding, and sustaining leaders of today and tomorrow, delivering a battle cry that will mobilize the leaders of the future in our increasingly turbulent and uncertain world.
Since it was published in 1996, The Leader of the Future has become a standard in the field, breaking new ground in leadership literature to establish itself as one of the most widely distributed, bestselling edited collections on the topic.
Now, ten years later, with all new contributions, The Leader of the Future 2 again gives voice to the most critical issues and transformative ideas of our day. This book features a Who's Who of today's top leadership thinkers from the private, public, and social sectors. A number of thought leaders from the first Leader of the Future return, along with some exciting newcomers, to offer new insights, inspiration, and wisdom that will resonate for decades to come.
