Leadership in a Changing World

  • Anatoly Zankovsky
  • Christiane von der Heiden


Today the problem of leadership is a popular issue not only in modern organizational life but also in society in general. The leadership disease has overtaken all continents, penetrating in all life spheres: education, sport, science, art, and even family relations. Companies and enterprises are striving to be a leader in the market, political parties pin hopes on new charismatic leaders, heads of democratic states and strong-hand dictators are equally well-disposed to be called “leaders”, as hasty journalists usually tag them. Whole countries and nations would be glad to acclaim themselves the leaders of the planet.
