Global leadership is an emerging field that seeks to understand and explain the impact of globalization processes on leadership. This is the first book to review the theoretical, empirical and conceptual literature on this important subject, and to analyze what this body of knowledge means for managers who lead in a global business context. Accessible to both student and practitioner alike, the book explains how changes in the global context have created a demand for a distinctive set of qualities for effective leaders. The volume seeks to define the skill set that global organizations are now looking for, highlighting the need to establish communities across diverse groups of stakeholders and initiate change as key aspects of global leadership.The book also presents a critical analysis of the training and development of global leaders of the future. Part of the successful "Global Human Resource Management" series, "Global Leadership: Research, Practice, Development" provides an important overview of a key emerging area within business and management. It is essential reading for students of leadership, organizational theory, strategic management, human resource management, and for anyone working and managing in the global arena.
