Summary The authors identify three stages of leadership development:early ingredients for success starting from childhood;paths that current and aspiring leaders should follow once they start a career; and what leaders should doexceptionally well to become and remain outstanding in organizations operating in multicultural environments. FOREWORD BY CHARLES HANDY What makes great organizational leaders? This question has been asked for many years by management thinkers and practitioners across the world. Developing Multicultural Leaders answers this question using a multicultural approach, and in a bid to discover what makes great leaders the authors tackle five related issues. @* What influence do early childhood years have on success? @* What are the specific life experiences that contribute to leadership success? @* How do leaders with potential become outstanding? @* What critical paths must leaders follow on their journey to success? @* And, finally, what must great leaders do exceptionally well to become and remain outstanding? Based on field research which involved questioning over 300 senior executives in 12 countries, this book synthesizes leadership literature as it answers these questions. It provides a new framework for thinking about leadership from various perspectives without ever losing sight of the whole picture .
