Cultural differences, geographical differences, and generational differences are all contributing to complexity for leaders in their management of the global business environment. The recognition, aspirations, and examination of leadership are not recent developments. For thousands of years, the human species has been telling stories about, honoring, aspiring to, and examining leaders. In a globalized world the dimensions of leadership are uniquely different from at any time in history, yet, in essence, it contains the same core set of principles. The structured process of leadership development is under pressure with rapid changes in the marketplace as the pace of technological advances are changing organizational dynamics. The leaders are now required to learn faster, make quick decisions, keep pace with the change in environment and to lead effectively in global and demographically diverse organizations and markets.

Keywords:   Leadership, diversity, cultural differences, geographic differences, generational differences, demographic, globalized world
