Having heard Bob Johansen deliver a keynote at the ACMP conference (Association of Change Management Professionals)this April, I was interested in reading his book and I'm glad I did. I made a point to order the second edition because of his updates and collaboration with the Center for Creative Leadership. He promised to be provocative and he is. Even better, he practices what he preaches in writing clearly and persuasively about the 10 new leadership skills that he sees as add-ons to current leadership competency models (Gulp! He also supports the concept of doing more.) He also gives broad guidance on what to do to prepare for the future, but leaves it in the readers' hands to figure out what to do--which is another of his lessons. The book is a little repetitive in places; however, he's reinforcing messages that seem difficult for some to accept.

In stores today, bookshelves abound with books about leadership. That is the big topic for MBA students, and current executives. It is a skill that is hard to teach, and even harder to define. With so many books being written how do they stand out from the crowd? This book might be one of the best currently available. It is the second edition, the first edition was published in 2008. In it Bob Johnansen explores ten skills, and concepts, that leaders will need to take of future issues. Mr. Johnansen does not fall into the trap of just covering case study after case study. He goes more in depth into the issues, ideas, and concepts that he believes to be important. He breaks them up into ten different categories. He then explores how they work, alone and within the larger group of ten. He also explores how people can broadly plan for what will happen in ten years, and where you want your company in ten years as well.

Unlike other leadership, and business, books. This book is well written. It does not make the reader feel like an idiot, and it covers many different topics. Leaders will need to excel in a changing world, and this book will help them.

Eye-opening read. The examples on which the author drew were somewhat inconclusive, however the precepts they illustrated will surely prove invaluable to any leader setting out to forge the future.

I heard Johansen summarize his book at a CORO leadership fund-raising and recognition lunch in San Francisco and was instantly sold, at age 74! He opened my eyes into what I need to be thinking about for a small non-profit whose Board I lead, so much so that I bought copies for not only our Executive Director, but also for four international interns we have with us for six months, and even my grandson, a freshman at the University of Louisville.

This is one of the best books I've read for understanding and planning the future incorporating global trends. It gave me a much greater understanding of organizing forces and principles I recognize but had not put into the larger context. Buy the hardcover book for the marvelous graphics inside the cover.

Fascinating look at leadership skills likely necessary to navigate organizations through increasingly uncertain worlds.

Empowering with actions leaders can take and skills that we can develop to act in order to create the futures we want.

Compelling in the responsibility leaders will share in creating better tomorrows in the face of serious shortages in many resources.

Hopeful in expressing means by which to overcome challenges and leverage our collective intelligence to make a better world without being able to solve every problem.

As an engineer at heart, leaves me uplifted that we can act sensibly without knowing the solution in advance.

Thoroughly enjoyable reading written in a highly accessible style.

Highly suggested reading to aid the leadership roles we each take on.
