"Former Under Secretary of Commerce"
New Skills For New Economic Realities: What traditional leadership skills will be in greater demand than ever before? And, in this age of offshoring, what new skills will U.S. workers be required to know? Garten explores the C-level challenges business leaders will face in the decade ahead, particularly addressing emerging markets, aggressively pursuing R&D and coping with the changing political and social environment.

He’s author of The Mind of the CEO, a book that details the innermost thoughts of 40 corporate titans while describing the strategic and daily challenges they face. He’s also author of A New Agenda for Business Leaders, The Big Ten and A Cold Peace.
