About the Book

It’s time to incorporate cutting-edge technologies to enhance your leadership skills and inspire future innovators. Melvin Greer, the founder and managing director of the Greer Institute for Leadership and Innovation in Washington, D.C., takes a fresh look at how to fill the leadership gap in this guidebook to leadership. He demonstrates ways to

• rethink assumptions and myths about innovation;
• develop leadership habits that lead to high performance;
• develop a successful workforce and talent management strategy; and
• create a modern innovation pipeline via STEM.

We can no longer confine knowledge about information technology to just one department. Just as leaders need to know how to read a profit and loss statement or interpret a balance sheet, they must also understand how technology can impact business strategy. A twenty-first-century leader must understand behavioral, economic, and social shifts in order to capitalize on opportunities and achieve success.

Whether you’re an executive, senior manager, a new hire, a teacher, or a student, you must use twenty-first-century leadership if you want to succeed.
