Emerging Leaders: An Annotated Bibliography.
Deal, Jennifer J.; Peterson, Karen; Gailor-Loflin, Heidi
In an increasingly global, technology-driven marketplace, a key organizational challenge is the development of leaders from the newest generation of managers. Recent and ongoing demographic studies and population research indicate that currently there are too few people in Generation X (born between 1964 and 1978) who can be considered as emerging leaders. Employees no longer expect to stay with the same company for an entire career. They also have a drastically different view of authority than previous generations. This publication provides an introduction to current thinking about and relevant research into developing, working with, and retaining emerging leaders of both Generations X and Y. Its goal is to help organizations understand the leadership-development needs of emerging leaders, what learning styles they tend to use, what challenges they face in defining and shaping their careers, and what leadership challenges lie in working across generations. In the first section, "On Emerging Leaders," main topics are outlined and themes are reflected in the relevant literature. In the second section, annotations are arranged alphabetically by author. Web sites are listed in the third section, and author and title indices are given at the end of the book for access to other material. (RT)
