Beschreibung

This innovative book integrates traditional and new leadership theories-including transformational leadership, leader-member exchange, authentic leadership, servant leadership, self-leadership, shared and distributed leadership, identity theory, and the value of emotions and affect-to provide a comprehensive look at the many facets of effective leadership. Practical and fun to read, the book incorporates personal reflections and current business examples to bring the theories of organizational leadership to life. In addition, engaging and relevant "Put it in Practice" features help students see how they can apply the leadership research to their own work lives, while leadership cases throughout demonstrate how real leaders have succeeded by applying the leadership principles discussed in the book. Written in a conversational style, the book is concise enough to be used in a case- or course pack-oriented course or in a modular program.

Pressestimmen

"The author's writing style and spot-on examples and cases bring the material to life. The author is an extremely talented writer…This text reads like a business 'best seller'. I was thoroughly entranced by this book and couldn't wait to read more of it. I would recommend it to students and leader/manager practitioners. The summaries of research studies are excellent and can be put to immediate practical use. This is the best book on overall leadership (text or otherwise) that I have ever read."
