Short description:

This text provides guidelines in a variety of settings and contexts while presenting best practices in successfully leading the 21st century workforce, offering strategies and tools to lead change effectively in the present-day boundary-less work environment.

Long description:

The unique leadership challenges organizations face throughout the world call for a renewed focus on what constitutes "authentic, inclusive, servant, transformational, principled, values-based, and mindful" leadership. Traditional approaches rarely provide a permeating or systematic framework to garner a sense of higher purpose or nurture deeper moral and spiritual dimensions of leaders. Learning to be an effective leader requires a deep personal transformation, which is not easy. This text provides guidelines in a variety of settings and contexts while presenting best practices in successfully leading the twenty-first century workforce and offering strategies and tools to lead change effectively in the present-day boundary-less work environment.

Given the ever-growing, widespread importance of leadership and its role in initiating change, this will be a key reference work in the field of leadership and change management in business. The uniqueness of this book lies in its anchorage in the moral and spiritual dimension of leadership, an approach most relevant for contemporary times and organizations. It represents an important milestone in the perennial quest for discovering the best leadership models and change practices to suit the contemporary organizations.

Designed to be a resource for scholars, practitioners, teachers and students seeking guidance in the art and science of leadership and change management, this will be an invaluable reference for libraries with collections in business, management, sports, history, politics, law, and psychology. It will present essential strategies for leading and transforming corporations, small businesses, schools, hospitals, and various nonprofit organizations. It brings the research on leadership and change management up to date, while mapping its terrain and extending the scope and boundaries of this field in an inclusive and egalitarian manner.

"I cannot endorse this book enough. It more than covers the diverse aspects of leadership. It's a must read!" - Dr. Ian Mitroff, Senior Research Affiliate Center for Catastrophic Risk Management, UC Berkeley

"Dr. Satinder K. Dhiman has curated and edited another powerful leadership anthology, The Routledge Companion for Leadership and Change. This vibrant collection of 33 chapters features a distinguished line-up of contributing authors, each of whom shares their research and keen insights into crucial aspects of leadership development. This book is a splendid blending of scholarship and practical applications. I highly recommend it." - Larry C. Spears, Servant-Leadership Scholar, Gonzaga University (Spokane); President, The Spears Center for Servant-Leadership (Indianapolis); Senior Advisory Editor, The International Journal of Servant-Leadership

"From ancient wisdom to emerging science, this book offers a cornucopia of theory and practice about leading in turbulent and unpredictable times. The international contributors to this book agree that today?s leaders must embrace new ways of thinking and being to guide us through unprecedented challenges, and they offer examples and practices to help us." - Judi Neal, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Global Consciousness Institute; Author of Creating Enlightened Organizations, and Edgewalkers
