A new era is dawning. Within less than two decades a fundamental change has taken place in our lives. Humanity, which has so far existed in one defined world, now exists simultaneously in both a real and a virtual world. We have developed a parallel universe, one that exists, is significant, powerful and even threatening. We are all present in that world, and it has practical implications for all aspects of our lives.
This book deals with the Era of the Global Individual. It describes the Global Person’s formation process and addresses the ideological, educational and leadership challenges stemming from this new reality while offering practical tools for contending with them. These tools are based on innovative research dealing with the crossroads between research on emotions and technology, and the wisdom we have acquired through the ages.

Dr. Shlomo Yishai was involved in the establishment of the Air Force Academy for Senior Officers. The great interest, learning and development we gained from meeting with him led us to adopt the method he developed as the basis for the Academy’s educational rationale. There is no doubt that the Academy’s success stems from the quality and tailoring of his method, which has empowered the leadership abilities of the Air Force commanders.
The practical models described in the book – the Human Trio and the Key to Leadership –provide everyone with the opportunity to enhance the results of their actions in the face of the new era in which we live in, and herein lies their importance”.
