"The incoming generations will soon be the leaders of the future and their values will drive the innovation of tomorrow. While many talented young professionals are eager and ready to take on these leadership roles, their voices are rarely heard. This book brings together the stories and ideas of the future from a survey of nearly 300 emerging leaders to get their point of view and thoughts about how organizations need to change in order to develop effective leaders of tomorrow." - Ellen M. Zane, President& CEO, Tufts Medical Center
"Next Generation Leadership is a welcome shout-out from young leaders about how they want all of us to collaborate to shape the future. This hopeful, insightful book shows why values and opportunities must become central to attracting and motivating the best talent." - Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School Professor, Director of the Harvard Advanced Leadership Initiative, and author of Confidence and SuperCorp
"Next Generation Leadership offers unique insight from future leaders regarding their most closely held values. Honesty, integrity, inclusion and social responsibility will be more critical than ever to creating and leading effective organizations. In order to effectively 'pass the torch' to a new generation of leaders, it's important that we listen to them now, and adapt to potential shifts in leadership focus." - Rick Friedel, Vice President, AT&T Service Management
"In this book, Penney and Neilson turn a great concept - providing leadership development, mentoring, and networking for the next generation of leaders in Boston's corporate, government, non-profit, and education sectors - into a lively and informative book. For eight years, the Emerging Leaders Program has contributed to the cultivation in Greater Boston of a more collaborative civic environment. The authors not only share the lessons of that program with a broader audience, but skillfully interweave the literature on leadership, the voices of the emerging leaders, and their own personal stories to shed insight - with humanity and rigor - on the future of leadership in our country." - Lee Teitel, Lecturer and Director, School Leadership Program, Harvard Graduate School of Education
"There is no better way to learn about leadership than through the eyes and voices of emerging leaders who aspire to greatness. Their fresh, hopeful and surprisingly perceptive views force all of us, even the most seasoned leaders, to recalibrate how we think about diversity, gender, ethics and what it really means to be a leader. This book speaks to a vibrant future, and everyone will take something valuable from it." - Ralph M. James, Executive Director, Executive Education, Harvard Business School
