Leading through Diversity: Transforming Managers into Effective Leaders is a unique contribution to the complex subject of leadership. Dr. Ayad and Dr. Rahim build on their vast and diverse experience to translate academic concepts of leadership into a practical roadmap for students as well as managers, executives, and business leaders. This book is an overview of contemporary aspects of leadership such as change management, diversity, and servant leadership that goes beyond philosophical arguments to "applied management" and "leadership-in-action".

Dr. Ayad narrates chapters of his own succesful journey of working with leaders who were able to turnaround organizations and deliver profits and shares amazing stories, insights, and leadership success secrets. Dr. Rahim, a survivor of the Killing Fields in Cambodia, brings a unique perspective to the topic of leadership from a servitude point of view. His work as a social entrepreneur, nonprofit executive, public servant and management consultant helps to diversify the leadership conversation and brings social responsibility to the forefront. The combination of Ayad's and Rahim's professional experiences and education adds a refreshing twist to a core topic that makes you want to rethink your understanding of what makes a leader and how leadership should be developed in the new millennium.
