Inclusive Leadership

A Framework for the Global Era


This insightful management book introduces an inspirational new ethics-oriented approach to business and leadership for current and future leaders. It argues that the challenges of today’s global era require a new, more holistic and ethical leadership approach than conventional concepts suggest. A framework for the concept of “inclusive leadership” is developed by linking leadership challenges and tasks to the transforming world.Based on over thirty years professional experience in various sectors of society and in both executive and advisory roles in business, the author offers practical suggestions on how to apply inclusive leadership in day-to-day activities. The book also emphasizes how ethics and virtues should influence and shape leadership, a link that is often absent in conventional leadership literature. Building a bridge between theory and practice, this book offers both practical and academic perspectives, with the ideas and concepts illustrated with many real-life examples.
