Breaking the Zero-Sum Game: Transforming Societies Through Inclusive Leadership

Editors: Aldo Boitano, H. Eric Schockman, and Raúl Lagomarsino (Emerald Group Publishing, September 2017)

Description: In a world plagued by wicked problems, escaping the win- lose dynamics of zero- sum game approaches is crucial for finding integrated, inclusive solutions to complex issues. In this timely book, the reader will uncover real- life examples of inclusive leaders that have broken the zero- sum game. From Ivy League colleges to African villages, from the very top of the Catholic Church to anarchist conferences and meetings, inclusive leadership can be applied ? and the protagonists will tell you how.

Including a foreword from Edwin Hollander, a pioneering visionary of inclusive leadership, you will find concrete examples and tools in this book that you can start using from day one (and in your own way) as an inclusive leader.
