The article presents the opinion of leadership experts on how U.S. President-elect Barack Obama can keep his promise during his campaign. With a modern, inclusive and charismatic leadership style, he has the opportunity to unite Americans and his proposed legislation could provide a major revision of the employee relations environment. Obama has pledged to fight for the Employee Free Choice Act, a bipartisan effort that makes it easier for workers to establish union negotiating rights and gives more protection against dismissal to pro-union employees.
