There is a lack of detailed knowledge of leadership research, and more generally organizational behaviour, organization development, and cross-cultural management research that examines the Middle East. Leadership Development in the Middle East is the first text published in English that focuses on theoretical development and case analysis of leadership development in the Middle East, in order to contribute to new knowledge and understanding of leadership theory and practice in the global economy. The book provides in-depth connections to the thoughts and practices of Presidents and CEOs in Middle East economies. It goes on to assess how they lead and develop leadership potential in organizations themselves and foster community improvements and advances in society. The book also includes an overview of women and leadership in business, community and political spheres in the region that is devoid from international management literature. This critically informed book is directly targeting international organizational behaviour, global business and international human resource management practitioners and students at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. It will be invaluable to HR specialists working in the Middle East, and for international HR consultants and practitioners working in MNCs on Middle East assignments, and for policy and community development experts in international agencies involved in leadership and organization development issues such as NGOs, the ILO, World Bank and United Nations.
