Reviews

'My mouth watered when first I saw the publication of this title, as it promised a next step in the exploration of cultural phenomena from within a culture's view and vision of itself.' -- George Simons, Delta Intercultural Academy
Essential reading for all practitioners and researchers who seek to gain greater insights on cultural differences and leadership competencies.' -- Rosalie Tung, Simon Fraser University, Past President, Academy of Management and author of 11 books including Learning from World Class Companies
'This fascinating collection of local mythology shows how widely leadership models differ across nations, and how deeply these differences are rooted. True global leadership is based on empathy with local variety.' -- Geert Hofstede, Maastricht University, The Netherlands, author of Culture's Consequences: Comparing Values, Behaviors, Institutions and Organizations Across Nations
'I have yet to come across a more captivating study of global leadership patterns. The reader is taken into largely unchartered territory linking globalisation, culture and leadership. Delving deep into folklore, mythology and spirituality we begin to understand how these are manifested in human behaviour and are exhibited in leadership styles. A must-read!' -- S. Ramadorai, CEO of Tata Consultancy Services
'. . . intriguing and worthy book . . . If you are a voracious reader of books on leadership and management style, this 4 part book does provide copious food for thought. The extensive bibliographies at the end of every article/chapter offer excellent suggestions for your further reading and research and it's a great series of 21st century critical commentaries.' -- The Barrister Magazine
