The world has never been as integrated or accessible as it is today, and the age of globalization presents unprecedented opportunities. It is in navigating new territories and growth markets that will define the leaders of tomorrow. As the importance of local knowledge grows in combination with a global perspective, the need to develop executive talent with this mix of capabilities becomes more acute.

In this breakthrough book, business leaders and business schools' deans and scholars have come together to lay bare the issues facing businesses in a more integrated global economy and how companies must adapt their leadership development efforts to a globalized future. Leadership Development for a Global World shows us how, if we are to realise the potential that globalization represents, we must change our approach to leadership development.
