21 Leaders for the 21st Century
IN THIS SUMMARY
According to Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner, because business cultures around the globe can be so different as to be diametrically opposed, a different managerial-leadership process is needed. This process must be driven by the kind of thinking that reconciles seemingly opposing values in a way that allows them to integrate objectives and deliver results that create wealth. Through their extensive research and close partnering with client companies, the authors have identified this new, overarching process as transcultural competence.
21 Leaders of the 21st Century presents a practical operational framework that shows how outstanding leaders manage knowledge effectively by reconciling the major value dilemmas, arising from cultural differences, that organizations must resolve when faced with the need to integrate people and systems. At the core of this framework are 21 case studies that provide a roadmap for learning from successful transculturally competent leadership behaviors.
