The Next Level of Intelligence for 21st Century Leaders

buzz from Thomas L. Sager, Senior Vice President and General Counsel DuPont Legal

"This book is a must read for any CEO or CLO of a multi-national corporation that is facing the immediate task of creating a leadership pipeline that will forever transform and best position its Company for the challenges of an ever increasing dynamic, diverse, and competitive global marketplace. Dr. Reeves artfully balances intuition, empirical data and pragmatism to make a compelling case for the need of today’s leaders to embrace a radically different mindset and approach to leading through inclusion and by seeking many different perspectives in search of all of the right answers and solutions to a problem and not simply selecting one “right answer” to solve the problem.

This is exactly the type of mindset needed within DuPont to maximize the growth opportunities that exist in the “developing markets” throughout the world. Simply stated, the leaders of tomorrow can no longer rely upon their innate intelligence. “Inclusive intelligence” will be the hallmark of successful leaders of the future. That is the case made in this treatise and one that could not have been more timely delivered. Thank you, Dr. Reeves."
