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 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.
Contributions by 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 Jazz), 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.
