Global and Culturally Diverse Leaders and Leadership BookcoverGlobal and Culturally Diverse Leaders and Leadership: New Dimensions and Challenges for Business, Education, and Society

Editors: Jean Lau Chin, Joseph E. Trimble, and Joseph E. Garcia (Emerald Group Publishing 2017)

Global and Culturally Diverse Leaders and Leadership: New Dimensions and Challenges for Business, Education, and Society 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 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.

Creative Social Change BookcoverBreaking the Zero-Sum Game: Transforming Societies Through Inclusive Leadership

Editors: Aldo Boitano, H. Eric Schockman, and Raúl Lagomarsino (Emerald Group Publishing 2017)

In a world plagued by wicked problems, escaping the win-lose dynamics of zero-sum game approaches is crucial for finding integrated, inclusive solutions to complex issues. In this book, the reader will uncover real-life examples of inclusive leaders that have broken the zero-sum game. From Ivy League colleges to African villages, from the very top of the Catholic Church to anarchist conferences and meetings, inclusive leadership can be applied – and the protagonists will tell you how. As the examples in the book demonstrate, inclusive leadership is not the privilege of a few gifted individuals with extraordinary human qualities. Inclusive leaders are not necessarily charismatic (like Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, or Martin Luther King, Jr). The vast majority of inclusive leaders are just regular everyday people. They only differ — and what a difference it makes! — in being able to turn what seem to be zero-sum problems into opportunities for inclusiveness. Including a foreword from Edwin Hollander, a pioneering visionary of inclusive leadership, you will find concrete examples and tools in this book that you can start using from day one (and in your own way) as an inclusive leader.

Grassroots Leadership and the Arts for Social Change Grassroots Leadership and the Arts for Social Change

Editors: Susan J. Erenrich and Jon F. Wergin (Emerald Group Publishing 2017)

Throughout history artists have led grassroots movements of protest, resistance, and liberation. They created dangerously, sometimes becoming martyrs for the cause. Their efforts kindled a fire, aroused the imagination and rallied the troops culminating in real transformational change. Their art served as a form of dissent during times of war, social upheaval, and political unrest. Less dramatically perhaps, artists have also participated in demonstrations, benefit concerts, and have become philanthropists in support of their favorite causes. These artists have been overlooked or given too little attention in the literature on leadership, even though the consequences of their courageous crusades, quite often, resulted in censorship, "blacklisting," imprisonment, and worse. This forthcoming book seeks to explore the intersection of grassroots leadership and the arts for social change by accentuating the many victories artists have won for humanity. Through this forthcoming book readers will vicariously experience the work of these brave figures, reflect on their commitments and achievements, and continue to dream a better world full of possibility.

Creative Social Change BookcoverCreative Social Change: Leadership for a Healthy World

Editors: Kathryn Goldman Schuyler, John Eric Baugher, and Karin Jironet (Emerald Group Publishing 2016)

Creative Social Change asks readers to consider, "What is my role in creating healthy organizations and a healthy world?" It then provides them with the frameworks and tools to explore that challenge, find a path through the complexities of today, and take action. The book contains practical questions that can be used for dialogue and action among leaders, policy makers, corporate sustainability officers, and organizational consultants as they consider the interconnections between leadership and sustainability and between the long-term viability of the planet and organizational development. The book is rooted in interviews with five prominent thought leaders — Robert Quinn, Otto Scharmer, Edgar Schein, Peter Senge, and Margaret Wheatley — who discuss their work in organizational and societal development. Readers will then discover contributions on what is needed for change from longstanding creative scholar-practitioners, such as Riane Eisler and Karl-Henrik Robèrt, as well as new voices. The book concludes with several case studies from around the world (including Latin America, Asia, the United States, New Zealand, and Africa). Unlike organizational effectiveness, which suggests something that works really well like a machine or a computer, organizational health is more fitting for our living, humanly-constructed societies—communities with heart and consciousness. This book is essential reading for those interested in investing in leadership and organizational health.
