Because of a management model emphasizing standardization and a one-size-fits-all approach, the previous good health of firms depended on economic performance and maximizing shareholder value. Financial crisis and the ensuing leadership void have changed the rules of the game for everyone. In this book, contributors from leading academic institutions around the world discuss different models of socially responsible global leadership from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Together they explore unpredictability and how, being responsible for social as well as economic outcomes, requires managers to adapt and to develop a sustainable and consistent approach. Uncertainty, Diversity and The Common Good, indicates what the new paradigms might look like and how working with diversity can create social change and new visions of leadership that impact social and cultural norms. This leads to discussion of the nature and diversity of leadership itself, which will be helpful to researchers, students, policy makers and practitioners.
