Leading a business in an age of globalization is often complicated by the interplay of forces such as technological advances, globalisation, and increasingly sophisticated multicultural workforces. This book delves into the minute details of transformational leadership and advocates for its adoption by business leaders operating in, particularly, developing countries. The book highlights best practices in employee motivation, change management, managing multicultural workforces, vision creation, demonstrating ethics and integrity, and creating a business strategy. An examination of the experiences and perceptions of top Liberian business leaders reinforces findings from an extensive review of the extant literature on leadership effectiveness, and helps make a compelling case for transformational leadership as the model best suited for 21st-century business.
