Book Description

15 Sep 2005 Monographs in Leadership and Management (Book 3)
With today's pressures to pursue style over substance, keep up with latest fads, assume superficial and disposable identities (e.g., on-line personas), and compromise one's values to "make the numbers", the challenge to know, show, and remain true to one's real self has never been greater. Facing such pressures, many people are looking for authentic leaders who are genuine, transparent, and trustworthy – leaders who are "real" and can be counted on to keep their word. In this volume, prominent scholars from a wide array of disciplines offer insights on the development of authentic leadership. Contributors consider the dynamics whereby such factors as humor, political skill, emotions, resiliency, and moral and spiritual leadership interact with authenticity to foster authentic leader-follower relationships at dyadic, group, and organizational levels. Contextual factors that may trigger the emergence of authentic leadership, including in extremis or "near death" situations, are also explored. Throughout the volume, contributors focus on how new theoretical perspectives, measures, and intervention strategies can be used to develop authentic leaders and followers. Ultimately, we hope the insights offered will promote a comprehensive research agenda into what constitutes authentic leadership and how it can be positively developed to produce veritable and sustainable gains in performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive and very well written 15 Aug 2013

An excellent resource for proposals and assignments - enriched with peer reviewed research material - I am glad I found this one as the PP handbook doesn't have a separate chapter on authentic leadership.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Leadership 26 July 2007
By C. Lund - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am presently completing a thesis in Authentic Leadership Development at the University of Auckland and have found the Monographs Volume 3 on Authentic Leadership to be very well structured and insightful in moving forward. The authors have succeeded with their objective to "produce original views on authentic leadership development and ground breaking insights for future theory, research, and practice".
