Product Description


The selection and size of the chapters is excellent. They are interesting and leave one only curious for more. In that way, the book truly facilitates thinking rather than providing a set of answers and that is a welcome addition. -- James Michael Burke

Here we are moving into the 21st century and organizations are changing. Organizations change in respect to power and influence, shared leadership, innovation, adaptatibility, inclusion, and social responsibility. This book explores the organizational environment towards new responsibilities of organizational leadership. I enjoyed the easy read, the concepts were explained openly, and the book was an excellent guide through my course of study in organizational leadership. I recommend this book highly for the doctoral level student.
HASH(0xa1bffc60) out of 5 stars Great book that follows the development of leadership theories Jan. 17 2011

This was a required text for a graduate course, but it turned out to be one of those books that you'd want even if not required. It follows the recent developments in leadership perspective by presenting an extensive collection of writings by the leading proponents of differing paradigms. It allows the reader to follow the development and put each theory into a developmental perspective. If the topic of organizational leadership interests you, this if a great read.
