Visionary Approaches to the Biggest Crises of Our Time
Edited by John Renesch

  Leadership in a New Era 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.

The book 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. Contributors include such successful authors on the subject of “New Leadership” as Warren Bennis (Leaders and On Becoming a New Leader), Margaret Wheatley (Leadership and the New Science), James Autry (Love & Profit and Work & Life), Max DePree (Leadership Is an Art and Leadership azz), and Ann Morrison (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 rare combination of business executives, professional consultants, successful authors, and leadership scholars has come 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 of New Leaders, and Implementing New Leadership.

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.

 “The perspective of this book exemplifies the new leadership by feeding the soul of the reader.”
--William E. Halal, Professor of Management, George Washington University

“Leadership In a New Era is a veritable feast of wisdom.”
-- Jim Kouzas, Co-author, The Leadership Challenge and Credibility, President, TPG Learning Systems

"What a gem! There is no other collection on leadership like this."
-- Dr. Michael Ray, Professor Emeritus, Stanford Graduate School of Business

"Leadership in a New Era is a must-read for any serious student or practitioner of leadership
-- Darrell J. Brown, President and Executive Editor, Leaders Magazine
