From Booklist

Bennis and his coauthors write about global managing. While for the conventional Western manager, effectiveness and efficiency in resource allocation are sufficient, the global manager must go further--must also be concerned with human values, ethics, and ecology. This book deals with managing in the new paradigm, one that balances economic, ethical, and ecological approaches. In introducing the new paradigm, the authors offer a conceptual model usable to orchestrate relationships among self, group, organization, and society. Helpfully, they deal in depth with global managing as it pertains to groups--resolving conflict, managing joint ventures, linking individualism to communalism, and building industrial democracy. Rich with illustrations and examples, this well-written work is highly recommended for the practicing global manager. Scholars and advanced students of business will also benefit from it. Joseph Leonard --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

This revised edition of Beyond Leadership focuses specifically on managing in the new paradigm from a global perspective with an entirely new chapter - Managing People at Work: Spiral Integration.

It integrates the work of major new-paradigm management thinkers across the globe, focusing in turn upon personal development, group synergy, organizational learning, and sustainable development, leading to a balancing of economics with ethics and ecology.

Beyond Leadership has been written to enable practitioners and students of leadership to manage uncertainty, diversity, conflict, and complexity. Its lead authors are American, Asian and Afro-European, and this range of perspective is reflected in the individual chapters.

The unique appeal of this book is its global approach to management as the next evolutionary step beyond the major western (American) and eastern (Japanese) perspectives.


More About the Author

Warren Bennis (Los Angeles, CA), born in 1925, is an American scholar, organizational consultant and author, who is widely regarded as the pioneer of the contemporary field of leadership. He is University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California. In the past decade, he served as chairman of the Advisory Board of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, working with David Gergen.
Bennis has consulted for many Fortune 500 companies and served as adviser to four U.S. presidents. He has served on the faculty of MIT's Sloan School of Management and was Chairman of the Organizational Studies Department. He is a former faculty member of Boston University, former Provost and Executive Vice President of State University of New York at Buffalo and President of the University of Cincinnati. His global experience includes teaching at the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta, INSEAD, the London Business School, and IMEDE (now IMD). In 2007, Business Week called him one of ten business school professors who have had the greatest influence on business thinking. He has received 20 honorary degrees and has served on numerous boards of advisors.
Bennis has written or edited 30 books, which have been translated into 21 languages, and many articles on three of his passions-leadership, organizational change, and creative collaboration. The Financial Times recently named Leaders as one of the top 50 business books of all time.
Bennis is proud of the four years he served in the U.S. Army, 1943-1947. At the age of 19 he was one of the youngest infantry commanders in Germany and was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. His dream remains: to write a terrific one-act play.
