Summary Annotation Whatever sector they work in, leaders today face tough new challenges posed by changing global and domestic environments using diverse workforces. They have to practice different styles appropriate to more complex and dynamic situations than ever before. They have to inspire trust, gain credibility, and implement innovations through others while remaining flexible and adaptable. The contributors to this wide-ranging volume seek to define exactly what leadership is or should be, and how to effectively develop it. Guided by an unusual framework that looks at leadership across different sectors and functions, they examine what they view as the major leadership challenges in highly visible for-profit, not-for-profit, and government organizations throughout the world.
