The Future of Leadership considers how the rapid changes of today will affect the leaders of tomorrow. Renowned Leadership scholar Michael A. Genovese argues that one of the key challenges for future leaders will be to effectively and constructively manage the `hyper-change' taking place both within organizations and in the broader social and political spheres. Taking a Futures Studies approach to envision the state of leadership in the coming decades, Genovese also provides case studies of leaders who have already demonstrated the mind- and skill-sets necessary to successfully manage rapid change.
Michael A. Genovese is President of the World Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University. He also holds the Loyola Chair of Leadership Studies and directs the Institute of Leadership Studies at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, California, USA. He has written over forty books and has won over a dozen university and national teaching awards, including the Fritz B. Burns Distinguished Teaching Award (1995) and the Rains Excellence in Research Award (2011).
