Building Leadership Bridges
This book explores diverse cultural leadership styles and paradigms of leadership that are dynamic, complex, globally authentic and culturally competent for the 21st century. It considers how the different world views and lived experiences of leaders may influence their leadership styles. This book also examines examine several dimensions, models and initiatives for examining leadership in a global and diverse world. We explore approaches aligned with ‘authentic leadership’ and ‘diversity leadership,’ which emphasize worldviews, human values, inclusivity and differences. We then offer ways in which these leadership processes may be assessed and cultivated in a culturally sensitive and ecologically valid manner.
This compelling book delivers an approach to leadership that is inclusive, promotes access for diverse leaders, and addresses the barriers that narrowly confine our perceptions and expectations of leaders. Redefining leadership as global and diverse, the authors impart a new understanding of the criteria for selecting, training and evaluating leaders in the 21st century.
