From the introduction

If ever our world needed true leaders who can lead in increasingly uncertain, complex and radically changing times, it is now. Leaders need to manage and lead through enormous complexity, while providing vision and assurance to their employees, stakeholders and shareholders. They need to understand themselves and their impact as well as understand their people, organisations and stakeholders, within both the local and global context.
