Book Description

Dec 9 2009 1412939089 978-1412939089 2
This text includes 50 short chapters from the most prominent international scholars of leadership who provide students with invaluable overviews, insights, and perspectives on leadership in today?s organizations. The book has a central organizing framework outlining the components of leadership (which is presented in the Introduction). It incorporates a new section on shared responsibility for leadership, new chapters on the external environment and on dysfunctional or unethical leadership behavior, a new section on inclusion, together with coverage of all the classic leadership theories, with updated chapters covering vision, mission, and structure that enhance the relevance of these theories in today's organizational context.

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 20100401

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.
