The consequences of global warming threaten the planet, but so far the response has been a patchwork of discrete initiatives that often dissolve amid competing interests. Professor Rae André asserts that fashioning a coherent global response will require the emergence of “systemic leaders” who can motivate disparate sectors of society to commit to a common goal. In this thorough but nontechnical manual, she shows how leaders can communicate the latest scientific findings to others, motivate people through a mix of logic and emotion, and promote problem-solving innovation through cooperation and competition. She explains how your organization can make a difference.
