Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
There are ten traits successful global leaders embody. Do you know what they are? Annmarie Neal defines the specific traits and model for business leaders to emulate in a compelling new book from ASTD Press: "Leading from the Edge."
The daily life of successful global leaders seems to be a paradox: daily operational needs balanced against creating conditions that drive future success in an environment defined by constant change. "Leading from the Edge" invites the reader to embrace the paradox by developing the essential traits of successful global-minded leaders.
Executives from companies like Cisco, Ericsson, Red Hat, Starwood Resorts, Western Union, naikuri.com, and ALOM share their strategies for worldwide marketplace success. Readers will learn how these executives embrace the dynamic nature of global business, set strategy, identify and solve complex problems, and guide their organizations. The book details how seven top leaders made the shift from individual thinkers to leading and growing global organizations; it identifies the traits, talents, and techniques that underlie and contribute to the success of today’s top global business leaders.
