Asia Pacific leaders on leadership
door Douglas G Long
Over het boek
Utilising data obtained from random surveys across Australia and New Zealand coupled with research among his students on leadership programs at Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Long conducted in-depth interviews with leaders from the political, business, religious, academic, and social arenas and the responses from these interviews are provided. The data indicated that there are 8 facets required of leaders in the Asia Pacific region - confidence, a clear communication of values, integrity, people orientation, change orientation, creativity, the ability to communicate effectively, and the creation of an environment which deliberately sets people up for success. The book explores each of these facets.
