Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The follow-up to Marshall Goldsmith's 500,000-copy bestseller "The Leader of the Future, " "Global Leadership: The Next Generation" systematically identifies what tomorrow's leaders will need to know, do and believe in order to successfully lead the global enterprise of the future.

Drawing on the results of an extraordinary 2-year Accenture study of emerging business leaders, this book shows why the skills of today's global leaders won't be enough--and why tomorrow's leaders won't resemble today's. Goldsmith and his co-authors first identify five new "factors of leadership" and their implications: global thinking, appreciation of diversity, technological savvy, a willingness to partner and an openness to sharing leadership. They explain what it will mean to lead in an era where intellectual capital is the dominant source of value; how to lead people whose backgrounds and values may be radically dissimilar from yours; and why achieving personal self-mastery is now a fundamental prerequisite for leading others.

From the evolution of "federated," semi-autonomous organizational structures to the personal leadership challenges now arising from globalism, this book offers unprecedented insights into the new challenges of leadership--and what it will take to meet them.

About the Author

Marshall Goldsmith is one of the world's foremost authorities in helping leaders achieve positive, measurable change. Ranked a Wall Street Journal "Top 10" executive development consultant and profiled by The New Yorker, he is one of an elite few that has worked with over 50 CEOs. He co-founded the Alliance for Strategic Leadership, a leading US provider of customized leadership development, and designed the Leader of the Future Process for developing leaders consistent with an organization's vision and values. He co-edited The Leader of the Future, The Organization of the Future and The Community of the Future; and authored The Many Facets of Leadership (Financial Times Prentice Hall).

I'd say that is a very general overview of Global Leadership and more than 50% of the book is about general Leadership, concepts that you'd find in any leadership book.

Super redundant, common sense, boring, unnecessary, much below the reading level of a college student. Having this assigned for a class was a waste of time and money. Don't buy this book unless you're working with middle school students.

It was actually a pretty good book. Disagree with the authors sometimes but who doesn't. Good price too. I would suggest buying the book here for anybody else who needs to read it or have it for a class they are taking.

This is a solid basic text on good leadership practices. Though called "global leadership" it really is common sense leadership, in that it gives a lot of examples as well as exercises to guide through the book and a corresponding course. I believe it is a fitting text for a beginning leadership class in the context of diversity.

I have been ad admirer of Marshall Goldsmith and Maya Hu-Chan, and found this book to be an indispensible resource for anyone interested in learning more about the state of global business management. I've started my own company, selling products from the U.S. to China and this book helped prepare me for the challenges and opportunities I would face in managing my business from afar.

What's even more impressive is that while the book is a few years old, they were right on the money with many of the insights they discuss. Just a terrific template for my company.

I regard this book as an indispensable and practical tool for personal leadership development. Quite often, we get or give 360 feedback where a growth opportunity is evidenced. This book not only reviews each area of skills, but more importantly provides valuable examples that actually drive change!
