Description - The Community of the Future by Frances Hesselbein

"This book of essays is full of rampant idealism. Its authors--educators, think-tankers, corporate executives, consultants, book authors, nonprofit association executives, and a German politician--share a desire to better the world through their ideas and actions. Many qualify as do-gooders in the best sense of the phrase." --Christian Science Monitor This third volume from the acclaimed Drucker Foundation Future Series focuses on the basis of society itself--the community. Featuring the examples of successful communities from New York City to Hawaii, The Community of the Future presents insights from Peter F. Drucker, Stephen R. Covey, Arun Gandhi, Elie Wiesel, James L. Barksdale, and many others. Their powerful essays explore what our communities will look like tomorrow--how we will live, work, communicate, educate our children, and govern ourselves. This collection shows readers: How to recognize and anticipate the trends that transform society The impact of new communications technology, including global and virtual communications How to create organizational communities and communities in the workplace How to envision and shape communities that will build values and embrace humanity From businesses, to communities of faith, to schools, to cyberspace--the gamut of human communities is explored by the world's foremost thinkers.
