In today’s time of crisis most of governments at all levels are "preparing recovery plans” to protect missions, staff, and budgets. Unfortunately they are “listening” to prophesy of only one religion – economy. However, “modern” economy with its caeteris paribus and other doctrines, models and concepts of the past cannot solve today’s complex socio-economic system. Further on the fundamentals of the economic science are containing some models and principles which are in contradiction with the basic laws of Nature. It is not surprising then, that the economic science is not able to cope with any crisis of a larger magnitude. Today we can produce enough food for everybody. We know how to make safe and environmentally friendly products etc. but due to economy and its “profit/cost/free market” prophesy it is impossible. To overcome permanent economical crisis cycling, we are in need for a new paradigm that can be introduced only with new leadership based on multidisciplinary approach. Numerous management methods have been introduced in the past to help managers to overcome managing teams and organizations. But at present perturbation times leadership with its vision and not management with its controlling people is needed more than ever. Namely the globalization process impacted the way how organizations are structured, team management and leadership are carried out. People from different cultures work together and embody a variety of personalities, as well as a variety of ways of doing things and a leader is supposed to be able to work with people and predict behaviours, and not to give and take offence. It is increasingly important and desirable to understand these differences and how they require different approaches to leadership and management.
