“Globalization is no longer a choice is a trend in everybody’s life. A global leader without cultural awareness and global leadership skills is not able to lead to his [her] full potential—not globally, not in today’s world.” Dr. Liana C Saenz.
The success of today’s global leaders and organizations depends more than ever before on their levels of intercultural awareness, perspectives on diversity, and correct application of this knowledge. In that sense, global corporations, organizations, and multicultural teams have opportunities to develop strategies that provide better solutions, increase productivity, improve effective communication, build teams and communities, and naturally bring economic benefits.
Global alliances and collaboration will play a major role in all economies in the next century, in particular, between East and West; then, the understanding of Chinese business leaders is probably more important than ever as America’s well-being and security, prosperity, and future are deeply affected by developments in Northeast Asia.
The current lack of literature on the relationship between acculturation and leadership for Chinese business leaders in the United States allows this book and the introduction of the study “The Rapid Rise of Chinese Transformational Leadership: The Model for the Contemporary Chinese Business Leader” a unique perspective and the opportunity to establish a ground based on its empirical findings.
This book provides well-researched insight into leadership, culture and a key economic leader in today’s world: Chinese business leaders, whose influence on the business, social, economic, and political landscapes cannot be underestimated.
