While emphasizing practical examples of individuals and organizations and updated research, Wibbeke’s core concept of ‘geoleadership’ speaks to the various business industries including finance, healthcare, and manufacturing. With contributions and endorsements from some of the most important thought leaders in leadership development and intercultural communication, this edition offers a resource for designing, delivering, and evaluating successful leadership theories and practices to both students and practitioners.

You’ll explore, with the author, quantitative and qualitative data that supports the research forming the Geoleadership Model and it’s seven core competencies: Care, Communication, Consciousness, Contrast, Context, Change, and Capability.
