She also extends her thanks to Dean Dan Moshavi, Prabha Chandrasekar, and Rick Zentler.

Research volumes like this one are seldom birthed without the support and sacrifice of the families. This volume is dedicated with special gratitude to them and to an extraordinary donor and an exemplary scholar whom we honor in memoriam.
Joyce: To Asbjorn and our family. In memoriam, to Don Lucas, a remarkable man and entrepreneur who made a noteworthy contribution to the field of global leadership by funding research, Best Research Awards, and global leadership development.
Sebastian: To my parents Kurt and Marion, and my three greatest sources of support and inspiration: Megan, Marie, and Louisa
Betina: To my wonderful family: Lenny, Sammy, Martin, and Lidia, for their love, support, and patience.
Mark: To Karsten Jonsen, a wonderful colleague who left us way too soon and whose correspondence and banter about football (soccer), FC Barcelona, the leadership style of José Mourinho, and the New Zealand All Blacks I deeply miss. Thank you, Karsten, for your humanity and your charity toward all who crossed your path.
We join Mark in honoring the memory of Karsten Jonsen who contributed so much to our field and our lives.
