Overview

The world of work has changed radically during the past decade and it continues to change faster than at any time since the industrial revolution. This has certainly led to a new challenge for leaders of today's organizations. Managers can no longer rely on the authority of their positions to command results. More than ever, they must elicit not just the willing cooperation, but the active participation of all their staffs to achieve their goals. Today, things are more collaborative, more team-based, and more cross-functional. People at every level are expected to know about, and often contribute to, multiple aspects of their organizations' activities.

The 12 cases in this book present a variety of approaches to developing leadership potential. Most focus on training interventions, with others dealing with executive coaching and individual mentoring strategies. Collectively, they offer a wide range of settings, methods, techniques, strategies, and approaches.

To meet the demands of leadership in the new century, top management must give its full support to leadership training programs that hone the skills of promising managers and team leaders at every level of the organization. Such programs must demonstrate a practical, results-oriented approach to new habit development and be designed in ways that maximize participant involvement and motivation. This book contains case histories of unusually successful leadership interventions that satisfy those criteria. Each offers an explanation of the strategies, techniques, and methodologies used to identify and address the leadership-related issues faced by the organizations involved. And, each provides insights on how similar approaches might be used by others.
