In many organisations and countries people are desperately searching for leaders that can provide
solutions to transcend the many financial, political and environmental problems that the world is
facing. Sadly, such leaders are few and far between. But fortunately there is hope: Beyondership.
Leaders who aspire to Beyondership possess and radiate a deep-seated vision, anchored in a clear
set of values. What others see as obstacles, they welcome as challenging opportunities. They create
environments that inspire passion, and persevere until their goals are reached. Even when not sup-
ported by powerful parties, they have the courage to be a minority of one and steadfastly fight for
what they genuinely believe. For a Beyonder, it is not about being the best in the world, but being
the best for the world.
'Beyonders presents a truly unique and challenging framework for all current and aspiring leaders.
It points the way to unlocking the real potential for authentic and creative leadership that makes a
telling difference. Undoubtedly a book that those who wish to make a real contribution, should read.'
Kobus Neethling, President South African Creativity Foundation and international bestselling author
'The book is written in a provocatively inspiring way, motivating readers to see the familiar in new
and exciting ways, by far transcending the insights in current leadership books. A must read…'
Bruce Stenning, Dean of the Beijing International MBA at Peking University
'The authors clearly are masters of their subject and have succeeded in putting across their insights in a very innovative manner. The many examples in which theory and practice are vividly discussed in the context of Beyondership are very compelling.'
Arnoud De Meyer, President Singapore Management University
