The Connective Edge: Leading in an Interdependent World (Jossey-Bass Business & Management)

Connect with a new kind of leadership

Welcome to the Connective Era, an era of global competition that transforms arch-rivals into allies and compels them to cooperate in unprecedented ways--an era of fundamental change that demands a new approach to leadership. With this book, internationally acclaimed consultant Jean Lipman-Blumen defines that approach with a bold new model based on an innovative nine-part strategy. She provides historic examples from Wall Street to the Warsaw Pact, from Gorbachev to Ghandi. And she delineates the skills leaders need in order to flourish under the demands of interorganizational relationships, joint ventures, and strategic partnerships.
