The management and managerial leadership theories of eminent management thinkers, taught in the business schools, are thought-provoking; but relevant, perhaps, only to the era and the environment of their research and development. The effectiveness of these theories needs a re-assessment of their universal application in the globalised environment of the current era. To put it differently, traditional leadership styles of managers are being put to test in a culturally complex environment. The objective of this book is to evolve an effective managerial leadership to match the demands of the multicultural organisations, through a down-to-earth tangible and practical approach.
Unifying the diverse categories of employees with different value systems, attitudes, lifestyles, behaviour patterns and linguistic abilities, is a complex and inescapable challenge to the managerial leadership. What we fail to notice is the significance of the power of positive managerial leadership–what is appropriate and what is outdated. The book contains numerous absolutely progressive and innovative concepts, methods and approaches which could help reorient managerial leadership behaviour of global managers and re-architect the organisations to which they belong. The author has undertaken detailed analysis of some of the important management theories taught in business schools, including their strengths and weaknesses.
The book clarifies, conceptualises and recommends significant aspects of institutionalised positive managerial leadership in organisations. The important milestones are influence of culture on employee behaviour, positive organisational culture, profile of positive managerial leadership, their changing motivational roles, organisational assimilations of multicultural employees, new approach to employee welfare and some suggestions to evolve a future-ready achievable dream organisation.
