Editorial Review: "The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." -- Albert EinsteinModern business leaders are just too aware of how much the world has changed in the last decades and continues to do so. It is little wonder then that even the best of us can feel overwhelmed by the many demands we now face in our working and private lives. Summarizing the knowledge and experiences of three experts in the field, and offering practical insights from specialists around the world, this book offers a new approach to leadership and personal development by focussing on the links between these two areas.The good old times of planning one 's development in a linear, step-by-step fashion over a lifetime are over. While recognising that there are different learning styles and personality types, the authors present a more proactive, flexible and emergent approach to your development. Topics such as sustainability, complexity and creativity are considered key issues that should play a role in not only developing a positive, future society, but also in refining the current and future you. This modern approach will give you a cutting-edge advantage in our fast changing world.Since the three authors whole heartedly agree with Einstein 's maxim, this book should be considered an attempt to equip you with new levels of thinking and new skill sets to make you more successful at leading and developing yourself and others in a variety of contexts. With structured activities and proven techniques from people who have successfully applied the lessons found in this book, Leadership and Personal Development, A toolbox for the 21 century professional, you will be armed with an effective approach to development.
