It's time to incorporate cutting-edge technologies to enhance your leadership skills and inspire future innovators. Melvin Greer, the founder and managing director of the Greer Institute for Leadership and Innovation in Washington, D.C., takes a fresh look at how to fill the leadership gap in this guidebook to leadership. He demonstrates ways to - rethink assumptions and myths about innovation;- develop leadership habits that lead to high performance;- develop a successful workforce and talent management strategy; and- create a modern innovation pipeline via STEM. We can no longer confine knowledge about information technology to just one department. Just as leaders need to know how to read a profit and loss statement or interpret a balance sheet, they must also understand how technology can impact business strategy. A twenty-first-century leader must understand behavioral, economic, and social shifts in order to capitalize on opportunities and achieve success. Whether you're an executive, senior manager, a new hire, a teacher, or a student, you must use twenty-first-century leadership if you want to succeed.

This illuminating study critiques the concept of leadership as understood in the last 75 years and looks to the twenty-first century for a reconstructed understanding of leadership in the postindustrial era. More similarities in past decades were found than had been thought; the thread throughout Rost's book is that leadership was conceived of as good management. He develops a new definition and paradigm for leadership in this volume that distinguishes leadership from management in fundamental ways. The ethics of leadership from a postindustrial perspective completes the paradigm. The book concludes with suggestions that can be immediately utilized in helping to transform our understanding of leadership.

Leadership is much more than a management technique: it is possessing the insight to see where it is possible to make a difference, and also having the tools to make that difference. Leadership for the 21st Century defines leadership, explains how it is practiced, and provides a rich portrait of what it is to be a leader, covering relevant and timely topics such as the importance of diversity, the role of social media in 21st-century leadership, and how to pass a leadership role on to another. It provides priceless information not only on what constitutes successful leadership but also illuminates why leadership falters. Based primarily upon research, this book assembles leadership lessons from more than 100 biographies and autobiographies of a diverse group of leaders, including individuals from the worlds of science, economics, business, and human rights, and also includes thought on leadership derived from of many other individuals representing both leaders and those who follow the leaders. As a result, the author presents not only a clear "how-to" guidebook for those wishing to lead, but also a comprehensive, multifaceted examination of leadership from several relevant perspectives.

Most leadership books focus on traditional leadership, which is based on managerial practices and command-and-control assumptions. Traditional leadership methods produce short-term gains but often at the cost of employee disengagement, team isolation, and distrust. Twenty-first century leadership methods produce short-term gains while inspiring creativity and innovation and boosting engagement. Nine Practices of 21st Century Leadership: A Guide for Inspiring Creativity, Innovation, and Engagement describes nine leadership practices that Gary DePaul derived by analyzing some of the best contemporary writers and thinkers on leadership. Explaining the nine practices, DePaul summarizes insightful leadership principles, beliefs, and practices, which includes tactics, tools, and resources that anyone at any career level can immediately begin using. In addition, the book demystifies the leadership concept, helps you avoid harmful traditional leadership assumptions, provides a leadership development roadmap, and presents real-world examples of how individual contributors, managers, and executives, have applied each of the nine practices successfully. After reading this book, you will be able to begin applying the nine proven leadership practices immediately in your organization. You will gain the skills needed to improve organizational strategies, diversity strategies, and leadership development training in your organization. You also will be able to improve how you manage and monitor your own professional leadership development.
