Leading in a Diverse & Conflicted World
Crucial Lessons for the 21st Century
Dr. John P. Fernandez
In today’s diverse and constantly changing world, excellent leaders are rare. With daily news stories about greedy, selfish, and shortsighted leaders, it seems many of our organizations and societies lack the proper guidance to move forward. Leading in a Diverse & Conflicted World looks at the reasons for this lack of quality leadership and provides solutions that balance our natural, innate desires around leadership with the rapid changes occurring in populations, communications, business models, and employment practices. Dr. John P. Fernandez shows how organizations that hire and value diverse employees will gain a competitive advantage in our interconnected world. This book equips readers with solid steps to lead their organizations, and their societies, toward better futures.
