Description: 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.
