The Palestinian Executive: Leadership Under Challenging

The Palestinian Executive is based on field research in the West Bank and Gaza, which involved interviewing 110 executives from 63 publicly and family-owned companies. Using a cross-cultural and contextual approach, the authors examine the leadership styles of successful senior executives and managers living and working under challenging conditions in Palestine. The book:
• Explores the impact of culture, environmental pressures, and harsh circumstances on doing business in Palestine
• Sheds light on the leadership, interpersonal, and decision-making styles of successful Palestinian executives
• Provides specific recommendations on how to develop future business leaders.
The Palestinian Executive is an indispensable book to many, among them: CEOs, business leaders, and HR professionals who are responsible for recruiting, motivating, and developing their current and future managers; aspiring young Palestinian students, supervisors, and managers; academic scholars as well as students of cross-cultural leadership; multicultural managers and expatriates who work with or for Palestinian organizations.
