In our days the concept of leadership is often met. Whether we read books or articles on business management, public administration, human resources management, etc. we are bound to “meet” the term of leadership in some way. This paper aims to present the current and future competencies and challenges of leadership, putting a bigger emphasis on the public sector, because in the last 4-5 years it has become an emerging phenomenon within public administration, which is mostly due to the fact that the public institutions – most of them – are not functioning in an efficient manner and this is attributed to faulty management. A second argument for choosing public sector leadership would be the fact that there are literally only a few books written that specifically discuss leadership in public service—that is, leadership exercised by “regular” public managers. While there are numerous books on political leadership and significant literature on military leadership, it is difficult to find many discussions of leadership that are aimed squarely at management-level agency staff, city and county managers and department heads, and so on. Finally we will identify qualities/characteristics of global leadership which might help future leaders to meet new challenges.
