The concept of Transcultural Leadership is gaining increasing attention among academics and in practice. In the context of the complex economical and societal developments that we face in today’s world, managing the relationing of different perspectives and enabling the required learning processes calls for competencies that go beyond traditional leadership concepts. Effective transcultural leadership is about responding to the challenges that globalisation and global value creation bring – and about accessing the potentials of cross-cultural cooperation.
Against this backdrop, this volume presents the current state of research on the concept of Transcultural Leadership and the corresponding competence models. It combines innovative theoretical and conceptual approaches with topical empirical analyses, and thereby offers a sound foundation for reflections on what it means to be a successful leader in today’s and tomorrow’s globalising environments.
