Leadership in a New Era is a collection of vision and wisdom for tomorrow?s business leaders, presented by a group of outstanding men and women in a joint collaboration. This rare combination of business executives, professional consultants, successful authors, and leadership scholars hascome together with a common theme: new times call for new leadership. Their collective voice calls for a fundamental transformation in the way we lead, the way we see leaders, the way we allow ourselves to be led, and how we think about leadership. Topics include: Difficult Issues and Challenging Times, The Leader?s New Responsibility, Leadership in an Era of Paradox, New Thinking for New Leaders, and Implementing New Leadership. Contributions by such successful authors on the subject of ?New Leadership? as Warren Bennis (Leaders and On Becoming a Leader), Margaret Wheatley (Leadership and the New Science), JamesAutry (Love & Profit and Work & Life), Max DePree (Leadership is an Art and Leadership Jazz), and AnnMorrison (The New Leaders and Breaking the Glass Ceiling) highlight this rich collection of essays, which is edited by John Renesch, business futurist and author of Getting to the Better Future. This book was created for the individual who recognizes that he or she could be doing more to improve or even transform their own role in their organizations, or their organization?s role in the world. Whether the reader is a middle manager, a CEO, a sales rep, or an accountant, he or she will find incredible value from the treasure chest of ideas shared by these authors.
