“Leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership. By combining them, you improve your capacity to deliver results and your organization’s capacity to affect change,” says Metcalf. The Innovative Leadership Workbook for Global Leaders, designed specifically for busy leaders who work for or lead global companies, includes field-tested processes and worksheets for innovating how you lead, transforming your organization, and creating sustainability.
The Innovative Leadership Workbook for Global Leaders provides a six-step process for developing innovative leadership qualities through a combination of well-researched theory, corresponding tools and templates and a practical business case study completed by Mitchell as he looks at his next career step.
It lays out a process for transformation, and includes a discussion of organizational culture, an exploration of, and tools for, improving personal and professional leadership style, and an in-depth description of the skills and abilities required for global leaders along with comprehensive recommendations on building these skills.
The workbook takes readers on their own leadership journey through a series of development activities while providing insight into the thought processes of a highly successful international leader whose unique challenges provide invaluable insight into how a leader develops and incorporates innovation both personally and professionally. Ben Mitchell shares his experience working in international leadership roles.
According to Kelechi A. Kalu, Ph.D., Associate Provost for Global Strategies and International Affairs; Professor, African-American and African Studies, Office of International Affairs, The Ohio State University, "In today’s global economy, it is critical that successful leaders develop strong leadership skills. Leaders need a solid grasp on the key skills required to operate anywhere and, without effective skills, leading across borders can result in frustration and a sense of personal and professional failure. This timely and efficient workbook delineates core competencies and provides a road map to guide leadership development."
