Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Identifies eight new competencies that will be required by twenty-first century leaders, and profiles twelve up-and-coming leaders who exemplify them.

New times demand new kinds of leaders. In a technological workplace which may be more virtual than physical, where bytes of information and cyberspace need to be managed more than people, leaders will have to thrive amidst high chaos and continuous change. Global Leaders for the Twenty-First Century profiles twelve such leaders from business and government and discusses eight key attributes necessary for successful leadership in the future.

"Marquardt and Berger deliver a well-integrated leadership profile for the twenty-first century." -- Robert Dilworth, Virginia Commonwealth University

"An essential work. Excellent choice of leaders and framework in which each is reviewed. A good way to start off the new century." -- Kenneth Murrell, University of West Florida
