A recent "Trend Watchers" article from the Canadian Management Center (an AMA affiliate) proclaimed that "the major building blocks of management science have been shattered over the last decade." The article went on to state that, "Traditional models are not bad - they just don't work anymore. Every model we learned about business has been challenged. The proposed replacement models cannot be validated. Therefore, every model is suspect." Citing that "These foundation blocks include leadership theories, concepts, and applications," the article concluded that the leadership principles that were referenced at the turn of the 20th century will not work when applied directly to 21st Century conditions. So what does the 21st Century business leader look like? What attributes will he or she have to possess to navigate the complicated waters of a globalized marketplace. Joining me to shed some light on this very relevant and highly important question is critically acclaimed author BILL McANENY, (Frankenstein's Manager: Leadership's Missing Links), bestselling author DR. GABRIELA CORA, MD, FAPA, MBA, (Leading Under Pressure), Merydith Willoughby whose latest book (Sex in the Boardroom) provides a systems approach to leadership development, and award winning author Forrest Breyfogle III whose 4-book series on the Integrated Enterprise Excellence System has become an essential text book in a number of schools.
