The Leader of the Future 2: Visions, Strategies, and Practices for the New Era

by Frances Hesselbein

The Leader of the Future 2 follows in the footsteps of the international bestseller The Leader of the Future, which has sold hundreds of thousands of copies, been translated into twenty-eight languages, and is one of the most widely distributed collections on leadership to date.
In twenty-seven inspiring and insightful essays, this book celebrates the wisdom of some of the most recognized thought leaders of our day who share their unique visions of leadership for the future. Our post-9/11 world presents new and unexpected challenges for present and future leaders, and the articles in this book reaffirm, reconsider, and expand on the basic principles and values of leadership as they apply to emerging and unforeseen challenges, opportunities, and trends. This diverse group of authors speaks to all of us--inspiring, guiding, and sustaining leaders of today and tomorrow, delivering a battle cry that will mobilize the leaders of the future in our increasingly turbulent and uncertain world.
