Why a book on leadership now?
Leadership makes the difference between progress and muddling through, between decisiveness and hesitation, between thinking and doing something, between
cooperation and mutual division. For centuries. Leadership also makes the difference in this day and age. It is clear as never before that leadership at all levels is a difficult profession, in teams, departments, companies, countries, continents.
This time calls for a new clarity about what leadership really is. It also seems as if leadership has to be rediscovered in every age,
so again now. For example, if we put the traditional definitions of leadership on today’s leaders, and today’s challenges, we can say that either the leaders or the definitions are wrong.
