Leaders and Leadership in a Globalized World

  • Cristina D’Alessandro
  • Frannie Léautier


This chapter builds on a book by Léautier (2014), which looked at the question of leadership in a globalized world. It extracts major concepts and definitions, and sets the tone for the issues related to leadership and space, presenting what leadership is in the context of more networked spaces and places. The chapter brings in illustrative examples and links them to the major challenges and skills required for leaders to be effective in interconnected spaces. The chapter also identifies the spaces where leadership is concentrated, and the consequences of this spatial distribution. Key sections of the chapter explore the major concerns impacting policy makers with leadership positions in an increasingly globalized world. Spatial and temporal dimensions of globalization are introduced, and the kind of skills needed to contend with these dimensions in challenges faced by leaders is highlighted.
