World Class Leadership involvement with the LINC Organization

We have had the privilege and dedication to interact with thousands of leaders around the country and world. We are grateful for the generosity of the leaders who have participated in LINC books, TV programs, coaching services, leadership forums, ongoing leadership research, and very importantly their financial sponsorship. Out of the thousands of world class leaders, Lynne Joy McFarland selected these 100 highly successful, inspiring and insightful leaders to be featured in our book, 21st Century Leadership - Dialogues with 100 Top Leaders.

We thank these distinguished leaders for participating and especially for recognizing the worthwhile purpose of educating our next generation of leaders and improving our current generation. These 100 leaders have contributed some of the greatest wisdom, expertise and know-how on high quality leadership that is available anywhere in the country and perhaps in the world.

Through their involvement in this book, and every LINC program they also participated in, they are serving as inspiring role models for our youth. These 100 leaders open up an important dialogue with other powerful leaders, with every student of leadership and with everyone who wants to know how to strengthen and enhance our families, our organizations, our educational systems, our communities, our country and the world.

We especially appreciate their having shared their greatest visions and highest purposes for the future, as well as their pragmatic solutions to the most crucial social and economic challenges humanity has ever faced. They truly understand the importance of acting now to ensure that everyone can thrive in the years ahead. Together we dedicate this book to all the leaders of the 21st Century.
