Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

This book brings together a "Who's Who" list of best-selling business writers, top consultants, and leading thought leaders such as Peter Drucker, James Collins, Noel Tichy, Stephen Covey, and more. Each contributor provides a unique perspective on new leadership imperatives. Today's business leaders must stretch beyond their enterprise's traditional boundaries into new partnerships, alliances, and networks. New approaches to management, strategy, marketing, and labor relations are forming each day. Here, in one volume, readers are given a chance to catch up.

"Beyond the walls is a battle cry that mobilizes.... The walls that surround us, protect us, and embrace us can also inhibit movement, limit understanding, restrict engagement, and diminish our relevance in the wider world. I realized that my walls, and the walls of leaders everywhere, were not only the walls of current policy, practice, procedure, and assumption but also the walls of the past—safe, familiar, and secure. This recognition was just the first of several as we worked through a process to take ourselves and our organizations beyond the walls to new levels of performance and positive changes in the lives of people." —from the Introduction by Frances HesselbeinIn

This first volume of the Wisdom to Action series, twenty-nine of the world's greatest thinkers explore the need for a new paradigm in leadership. In today's fast-paced global society, leaders must be adept at establishing diverse partnerships, alliances, and networks by building and maintaining relationships both within and outside their own organizations. They must be comfortable with working with individuals and organizations they cannot control in the traditional sense, but with whom they share core values, purposes, and goals. Ultimately, they must learn to lead through commitment and connection—both of which are rooted in freedom of choice rather than in systems of coercion and control. Leading Beyond the Walls brings together Peter F. Drucker, Stephen R. Covey, Peter M. Senge, Jim Collins, Noel Tichy, Regina E. Herzlinger, C.K. Prahalad, Sally Helgesen, and other thought leaders to describe new ways of building relationships, new approaches to strategy and marketing, new models of employee relations, and other innovative ways of thinking and acting. They share practical insights on the challenge of leading in an age when the old rules and conventional boundaries no longer exist.
