From the Inside Flap:

What makes a great leader in the new world of business?
What are the key attributes of great modern leaders?
What can you learn from the greatest leaders in the world?

Is the business world entering a new leadership era? Are new leadership skills necessary to compete globally? Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden-Turner reveal in 21 Leaders for the 21st Century that the leaders of global corporations are beset by a series of dilemmas, pairs of conflicting propositions that clamour for their attention. Successful leadership depends on the capacity to integrate these demands and create powerful strategies that unite them.

Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner have studied and interviewed hundreds of chief executives around the world and a striking pattern has emerged. Transcultural competence and the ability to integrate seemingly opposed cultural values are among the most important skills of the coporate leader.

Business results improve immeasurably when leaders are aware of, respect, and celebrate cultural diversity within their orgnaization. Great leaders actively manage the complexity and ambiguity of their environments and are determined to benefit from the vast opportunities and advantages presented by cultural variety., For corporate leaders this awareness is a critical component of long term success.

21 Leaders for the 21st Century redfines leadership. Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner tap into the wisdom of high-performing leaders from around the globe, from Micahel Dell to Acer's Stan Shih and from Richard Branson to Russian politician and banker, Sergei Kiriyenko. These business giants candidly reveal their personal experiences of business dilemmas. 21 Leaders for the 21st Century uses these important insights into the nature of leadership to show today's managers how to understand and use the seven dilemmas of leadership.

From the Back Cover:

"Tom Peters step aside. The dynamic duo of Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner clearly demonstrate what effective managers need to learn to lead their organizations into the digital age. A fascinating, spellbinding text blending the intercultural dilemmas of management with the reconciling forces of leadership to crete innovative leaders. Examples from 21 business leaders prove again and again that Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner have hit enough nails on the head to build a solid model for the future." David C. Wigglesworth, Ph.D., president, D.C.W. Research Associated International, Kingwood, Texas
"With the bookshelves full of 'one size fits all' approaches - a book that examines leadership applied across cultures, values, and twenty situations is a refreshing change" - John Luff, Vice President Brand, BT Worldwide
"Trompenaars and Hampden-Turner bring a unique perspective to the field of leadership in this fascinating analysis of the behaviour of a broad spectrum of effective leaders. The capacity to resolve dilemmas may be the essential competence for leaders in the 21st Century." David K. Hurst, author of Crisis and renewal: Meeting the Challenge of Organizational Change
"This book takes one very deeply into the nature of effective leadership, hence understanding of it, more than most books. It provides a better basis that has been available for selecting effective leaders from among candidates for the job." Russell L. Ackoff, Anheuser-Busch Professor Emeritus of Management Science, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
