As the world becomes increasingly interconnected and cross-cultural contexts gain prominence, leaders can no longer ignore the global dimensions of leadership.

The way we study leadership must be informed by processes that take place beyond and across borders.

The way we practice leadership cannot ignore the cultural basis of our thoughts and actions.

This book provides cutting-edge perspectives on the impact that globalization is having on the study and practice of Global Leadership. To explore these various facets of Global Leadership, The Study and Practice of Global Leadership has been divided into three parts.

In part I, we define what is meant by globalization and its facets, including political, economic, and social integration.

In part II, the authors examine the proliferation of Leadership Programs in schools across the globe, focusing on initiatives in China, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia.

In part III, the book highlights the challenges that practitioners face when they translate theoretical insights into on-the-ground action. In the spirit of offering a wide variety of applied topics, the reader will have an opportunity to see how Global Leadership plays a role in the multinational corporate setting, Sub-Saharan African countries, international development, immigration, and gender equality.
