LEADERSHIP AS A VOACTION: CELEBRATING THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MCCLOY PROGRAM AT HARVARD UNIVERSITY, Houben, Guido, Rusche, Tim, eds., Nomos, 2008
This chapter is part of a comprehensive volume on leadership that seeks to define good leadership and explain why we need it, where and how it is taught, and what tools can be used to exercise it in a globalizing world. The chapter builds an earlier working paper on leadership in a globalizing world. What are the challenges? And how can we address them? The paper's central hypothesis is that a globalizing world requires a more sophisticated form of leadership. It discusses the implications of asymmetric interdependence, complexity, and the obsolescence of established models, and concludes that citizen leadership will be a necessary ingredient to render our species socially and environmentally sustainable in the twenty-first century.
