There has been a lot written about leadership for the present day, but the world is changing quickly. What worked in the past won't work in the future. We need to know how to prepare leaders who can successfully navigate and guide us through the next decade and beyond.
How is leadership changing, and why? How ready are leaders today for these changes? What should leaders do now? To answer these questions, Jacob Morgan interviewed over 140 CEOs from companies like Unilever, Mastercard, Best Buy, Oracle, Verizon, Kaiser, KPMG, Intercontinental Hotels Group, Yum! Brands, Saint-Gobain, Dominos, Philip Morris International, and over a hundred others. Jacob also partnered with Linkedin to survey almost 14,000 of their members around the globe to see how CEO insights align with employee perspectives.
The majority of the world's top business leaders that Jacob interviewed believe that while some core aspects of leadership will remain the same, such as creating a vision and executing on strategy, leaders of the future will need a new arsenal of skills and mindsets to succeed.
What emerged from all of this research is the most accurate groundbreaking book on the future of leadership, which shares exclusive insights from the world's top CEOs and never before seen research.

Shallow, superfluous and lacks anything new or insightful. Heard about half of it and gave up. It’s kids stuff. Just throws in some popular concept and jargons - that are bandied about these days - without clear understanding of what they are and how they relate to the topic of LEADERSHIP. Also factual errors at points. Good for management students who want to write a book report on “ future of leadership” but not for genuine practitioners and professionals.

I sure hope the leadership of my company isn't taking anything away from this book. Sophomoric at best. Not much real world advice-- too much theory . Why you would choose to repeatedly reference and quote Marissa Mayer in a leadership book is beyond me.
- Caitlin O.
a must read especially in today's ever changing society. this will truly help set you on the path of becoming the future leader.
Author doesn't talk about himself at all.
Con- Audible version was a struggle to finish. Informative books aren't my preference of go-to reads. I listened to this via Audible.
Less "they" and more "I" would be appreciated.
- Morgan immediately sets out pointing fingers yet not 1 reference to himself, his struggle, experience, inspiration to write this or what his intentions were when he decided to write this book. Let us get to know you, it might actually allow readers to WANT to have an Interest in reading the book.
-Who are you dude ?
Why is what he says any more credible than what any other person says ? Is he a powerful figure in the motivational speaking world ? If so, he should reference himself more often and give himself the time to share what he has learned, built and /or created. So that right there is fallen star. Maybe next time ?
Annoying as an audio book.
-Audible version was a little brutal to my ears.
I would compare the experience to having someone tell you their horrible bosses story for the duration of 12 + chapters. Point being is that if you prefer that experience, go Audible. Otherwise, paper and print this one. Just my opinion.
- Jacob Morgan brings his individual perspective, based on his professional experiences, of engagement and relationships with toxic energies in leadership positions.
- He occasionally highlights strengths of positive leaders, and how these helped them collaborate with others, build teams and share in developing and working towards, a mission and vision.
Overall Morgan did a consistent job of making his intentions known to his reader audience. Like-minded or divided in perspectives, Morgan set out to help ensure that readers hear what he has to say, with the intention of helping them understand his perspective on leadership.
My Truth: I had to read through a few chapters before I intentionally wanted to. Just being real here.
Chapter 11 starts by identifying challenges existing in leaders but he doesn't stop there as I would have expected. At that point I felt he was generalizing one claim, his own, to a larger collective. But I was wrong. Morgan saved the best towards the end..when he shares strategies and solutions.
Strategy and Approach for Motivational engagement from his audience:
Morgan challenges the readiness of his prospective audience. Morgan kept it real and it gave me a really good idea of what his intention was when he wrote the book, and wanted to.
I'm Pooja and I wrote this.
