Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

The Leader of the Future is a compendium of new thought. It is a book about the future quality of our lives, our businesses, our organizations, our society - and the leadership required to move us into the exciting unknown. Each of the acclaimed authors offers a special perspective on leadership, a unique glimpse into the future, and together their thinking forms a treasure trove of insight and knowledge. All essays were written especially for this book, providing even the most astute reader with new insights and directions crucial to becoming an effective leader in the organization of tomorrow.

The Leader of the Future offers cutting-edge essays that directly address the future quality of businesses, organizations, and communities—and the leadership required not just to survive, but to thrive. Acclaimed authors, world-renowned consultants, and respected executives present their special perspectives on leadership and a compelling glimpse into the future.

This best-selling collection demonstrates:
  • How leaders motivate by turning the organizational pyramid upside down
  • How partnering has become a primary skill of world-class leaders
  • How leaders of the next millennium can create an organizational culture based on principles
  • How leaders emerge—independent of official rank or status—from organizations that nurture dispersed authority
  • How to inspire hope and purpose in those who want direction and wish to contribute

Peter F. Drucker, Charles Handy, Sally Helgesen, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Stephen R. Covey, and many other great thinkers share their visions of tomorrow's leader—as different and commanding as their individual records of success—and each powerfully relevant to the future of business, government, and the nonprofit sector.


"An exciting exposition of numerous ideas on leadership that can nourish the reader spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally. The book is richer for its contributions from diverse leadership thinkers—academics, consultants, and practitioners.... It can offer a challenge to the reader wishing to become more like the leaders whom these numerous authors profile."
—Academy of Management Executive

"The Leader of the Future is a thought-provoking collection of essays that gets readers up to speed on the most important trAnds facing today's leaders. It's a one-stop shopping guide that shows how leaders can be successful."
—Training & Development
