Product overview

Organizations and societies are facing extreme challenges that require action (IPCC, 2021). The UN’s sustainability goals, demographic change, and the green shift are knocking on the door, while traditional education, and ways of leading and managing this development, often fail to keep up.

As such, the book is written for everyone who wants to be MAD – to Make A Difference – students, scholars, and practitioners alike.


“Responsible leadership requires thoughtful awareness of the motives and consequences of one’s actions. This book is fodder for such thoughtfulness.” –Jonathan Gosling, Emeritus Professor of Leadership, University of Exeter, UK

“Rune By, Bernard Burnes and Mark Hughes have produced an essential text featuring the work of leading thinkers on change, leadership and ethics. This is state-of-the-art work on the organizational challenges of the first half of the 21st century.” – Bill Cooke, FBAM FAcSS PhD, Emeritus Professor of Strategic Management, The York Management School, University of York

“In their challenge to how organizational leadership and change are researched and taught, the editors of this volume are posing questions that our world, which is being transformed by the two massive upheavals of the past three years, needs to be asking. How we form the leaders of tomorrow is at stake.” – David Coghlan, Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin

“This book is a provocative and enthusiastic tour-de-force. Challenging traditional views of ethical change leadership, the authors exhort leaders and followers to rise up with intelligent disobedience, be inspired to be MAD (Make a Difference) and navigate the new complexity in the collective pursuit of purpose. In a polluted landscape, this agenda is a breath of fresh air.” – Professor Richard Badham, John Grill Institute for Project Leadership, Sydney University
