In twenty-seven inspiring and insightful essays, this book celebrates the wisdom of some of the most recognized thought leaders of our day who share their unique visions of leadership for the future. Our post-9/11 world presents new and unexpected challenges for present and future leaders, and the articles in this book reaffirm, reconsider, and expand on the basic principles and values of leadership as they apply to emerging and unforeseen challenges, opportunities, and trends. This diverse group of authors speaks to all of us--inspiring, guiding, and sustaining leaders of today and tomorrow, delivering a battle cry that will mobilize the leaders of the future in our increasingly turbulent and uncertain world.
