ADVANCED LEADERSHIP INSIGHTS
HOW TO LEAD PEOPLE, TEAMS AND ORGANIZATIONS TO ULTIMATE SUCCESS
Great leaders know that prestigious appointments do not only entail advantages, but also major responsibilities. They are willing to set high standards: First and foremost for themselves and only thereafter expect others to follow them. They never rest on their laurels, but embrace life‐long learning. They are thus inspirational roles models for others. They walk the talk and earn loyalty — do not just demand it. They have prepared themselves well without risking complacency or overplaying their strengths. They ensure that more than mere luck will allow them to succeed in a world full of ambiguity, change, dilemmas, and even trilemmas. Most importantly, they orient themselves to follow their moral compass. They also know that it has never been so easy to find inspiration, a reality check, and advice on the development of their situational solutions.
This book aims at providing such easy access to crucial insights into sustaining success. International top management and leadership consultants, lifelong learning experts, experienced executive coaches, and leadership faculty from leading business schools share their insights to help leaders cope with today’s and tomorrow’s complexity.

Leadership and Personal Development
A Toolbox for the 21st Century Professional
“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” — Albert Einstein.
Modern business leaders are just too aware of how much the world has changed in the last decades and continues to do so. It is little wonder then that even the best of us can feel overwhelmed by the many demands we now face in our working and private lives. Summarizing the knowledge and experiences of three experts in the field, and offering practical insights from specialists around the world, this book offers a new approach to leadership and personal development by focussing on the links between these two areas. The good old times of planning one’s development in a linear, step-by-step fashion over a lifetime are over. While recognising that there are different learning styles and personality types, the authors present a more proactive, flexible and emergent approach to your development. Topics such as sustainability, complexity and creativity are considered key issues that should play a role in not only developing a positive, future society, but also in refining the current and future you. This modern approach will give you a cutting-edge advantage in our fast changing world. Since the three author whole heartedly agree with Einstein’s maxim, this book should be considered an attempt to equip you with new levels of thinking and new skill sets to make you more successful at leading and developing yourself and others in a variety of contexts. With structured activities and proven techniques from people who have successfully applied the lessons found in this book, Leadership and Personal Development, A toolbox for the 21 century professional, you will be armed with an effective approach to development.
