LEAD: Leadership Effectiveness in Africa and the African Diaspora contemplates the new business environment of Africa and addresses the need for management styles to adapt to societal changes across the continent.

On Wednesday, Nov. 1, University of Tampa Professor of Management Bella Galperin will give a reading from her new co-authored book, LEAD: Leadership Effectiveness in Africa and the African Diaspora. The reading, which begins at 6 p.m. in the MacDonald-Kelce Library AV Room 2, is free and open to the public, especially those interested in African and global business leadership from a non-Western perspective.

LEAD: Leadership Effectiveness in Africa and the African Diaspora contemplates the new business environment of Africa and addresses the need for management styles to adapt to societal changes across the continent. The book investigates the similarities and differences across African countries, compares them with other regions, and identifies particular cultural realities that managers must consider in order to be successful in the new business environment of modern Africa.

At the reading, Galperin will highlight why we should be interested in Africa and the growing importance of the African diaspora.

Galperin is a senior associate director for the TECO Energy Center for Leadership and a former associate editor of Cross Cultural Management: An International Journal. Along with her book, Galperin has published countless articles related to leadership, international management, workplace misbehavior, entrepreneurship and human resource management.
