Leadership & Professional Development: Building 21st Century Global Leaders, 2nd Edition
by Belinda Johnson White, Ph.D.
The overarching goal of this book is reflected in its subtitle: Building 21st Century Global Leaders. Effective leaders in the 21st century will have to know and understand not just the hows (skills), but the whys (theories) of leadership, and be able to make the relational connection between the hows and the whys. Now more than in any other time in our history, effective leaders will have to master four hallmarks of leadership and professionalism:
1) relationships built on integrity;
2) work grounded in excellence;
3) service that meets the needs of the local, regional, national, and international customer; and
4) outcomes that result in the betterment of all stakeholders and mankind. Therefore, the time is overdue on the delivery of a textbook that teaches the "leadership-professionalism, theory-practice" connection to emerging leaders in the colleges and universities of our nation and in the world.
