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.

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.
