Leaders have come and gone, but few can be considered exemplary. War, destruction, and political corruption run rampant in the world. A wake-up call is needed to tackle the increasing polarization among nations from various unresolved conflicts. Leaders with sound morals and character must rise. In Shaping the Future of Global Leadership, author Dr. Salar A. Khan explores how to develop the mindset of a leader and train and select these people to create a more peaceful and just world.
He reviews failures of the current leadership system and presents ideas for creating a new, independent global leadership organization (IGLO) that will generate standards for best practices and accountability for any wrongdoing among leaders. Khan demonstrates how this organization creates a system by which global leaders must undergo a thorough mental evaluation, personality and values development, and basic knowledge before engaging in the election process. In addition, he proposes a screening tool identifying global leaders with the highest chance of functioning well in making high-level decisions that impact the course of nations.
Shaping the Future of Global Leadership demonstrates that by identifying and training the right leaders, we can work together to make the world a better place to live, one in which society is more harmonized and regulated.
