This timely Research Handbook brings together a group of internationally renowned scholars to take a fresh look at global leadership, querying in what way leaders, teams, firms, universities and business schools can make a difference in our world today and tomorrow.

Presenting contemporary studies into a vibrant field, this Research Handbook offers empirical, theoretical, critical and pedagogical-based research, placing leaders firmly in their global cultural context. Chapters cover critical issues such as how leaders and teams can understand and incorporate cultural multiplicity, how firms can engage in responsible and inclusive leadership, and how universities and business schools can innovatively educate socially conscious global leaders to have an impact on our future.

Comprehensive and insightful, this Research Handbook is critical reading for researchers of leadership seeking new avenues of enquiry. The broad and multilevel approach to the challenges and demands of contemporary leadership are also valuable for practitioners, business school teachers and students.

Critical Acclaim
''In the Research Handbook of Global Leadership, Lena Zander has masterfully charted the topography of the area of global leadership and brought together many of the leading thinkers in the field to create a timely and important reference point for anyone interested in the area. What sets the volume apart is the explicit focus on leadership that makes a difference. In the context of the current failures which are apparent in leadership at the highest levels globally, combined with the grand challenges facing nations globally, leaders who make a difference are even more important. This Handbook is an excellent point of departure in developing more responsible leadership and I highly recommend it to anyone with a research interest in the area, or to those charged with leadership development.’
– David Collings, DCU Business School, Republic of Ireland

‘This thought-provoking book is a must-read primer for anyone considering studying, researching and practicing leadership in the global context. Contributors problematize and unfold one of the most mystified concepts of modern times – global leadership. They have done it across the levels, borders, and contexts, offering truly unique perspectives and guidelines for how to exercise responsible global leadership to build an inclusive society.’
– Dana Minbaeva, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

‘Lena Zander’s Research Handbook of Global Leadership is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the increasing breadth and depth of the global leadership domain. The Handbook not only brings together an authoritative international author team, but also makes a compelling case for the differential role – and educational needs – of global leadership across team, organizational and cultural settings. It provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary account of how leaders can effectively impact employees, their organizations and society at large in an increasingly diverse global context.’
– Sebastian Reiche, IESE Business School, Spain
