Overview

"The last two decades of transition in organizations have presented new challenges to leadership. Many leaders face mergers, downsizing, and acquisitions that threaten to destroy trust within their companies. This book provides insight into what separates effective leaders from supervisors, advice for moving beyond the stimulus-response condition of the marketplace, a review of the proven approaches that increase an organization's staying power, and methods for increasing character and competence in leadership." "Leadership for the Ages challenges leaders and commits them to a worthwhile vision of balance, demonstrating that the very core of leadership - that which makes real leaders successful - is as timeless as the elements of nature. It is a road map as well as a "how to" manual for maintaining satisfaction with the bottom line while building trust. It represents the hope of leaders - the potential to achieve success, even in difficult times."--BOOK JACKET.
