SIDELIGHTS:

Ron A. Carucci is a management consulting expert and the author or coauthor of books focusing on improving management within companies. In his book Leadership Divided: What Emerging Leaders Need and What You Might Be Missing, the author examines various incumbent and emerging leaders in business and the relationship between the two groups. According to the author, established and new management often view each other suspiciously. The author discusses how new, younger managers and personnel are intent on developing creative management and leadership roles. As a result, according to Carucci, incumbent management personnel must adjust their own habits of leadership and management to fit into an evolving world of business. The author uses various fictional case studies to explore various management traits and how to better communications between incumbent and new management personnel. "The concept of a leadership divide is well-articulated by Carucci during the book's introductory chapter," wrote a contributor to the Maximum Impact Web site. The reviewer went on to write that the author's "fluid storytelling holds the reader's attention as he develops his ideas for fixing the breakdown between generations." Brian Walton noted in the Library Journal that Carucci's "points make sense for the most part."
