By Jim Selman
BACK COVER of the book, "LEADERSHIP" by Jim Selman In this book, Jim Selman presents essays written between 1998 and 2010. The common thread of these essays is that leaders are committed to creating the future. The author posits that the majority of recurring problems that we have today cannot be solved within the historical and cultural context in which they came about. He suggests that the largest collective problem that we have is a "problem of paradigm" - the type of problem that does not have a solution. In other words, Selman proposes that solving problems is a manager's task. Creating problems that deserve to be solved, is a leader's task. In his opinion, leadership is a linguistic phenomenon and a constant process of transformation based on personal responsibility and commitment. From his ontological discipline we can begin to observe that paradigms are linguistic interpretations and see how human beings achieve breakthrough results by inventing new futures for themselves, their organizations and the global community.
