Product Description

Review

“This is a great textbook that provides the foundational theories of leadership. The book achieves a critical balance of providing scholarly research and practitioner perspectives. Case studies, class activities and leadership surveys provide an integrative perspective of individual, team and organizational leadership styles and practices” (Meera Alagaraja 2011-10-28)

What a great resource!Great book - Great case studies for the students - Easy to use. My students fine this book very sharpened and readable. I describe this bookas a pinch of background of what leadership is. This book is one of the rare book that presents Servant leadership in a new form for both instructors and students. (Dr. Oris Guillaume 2012-02-14)

A seminal work; a keeper! (Paul W. Decker 2012-03-09)

Just commenced a course on leadership and this book is an easy ready and covers quite a lot, it describes a few leadership styles and traits which not many of these books cover. This is worth having if you are a student and don't know where to start on leadership essays etc.

Delivery was prompt.

This helped me through my leadership module however it's not the easiest book to read. Very useful with lots of theory but you have to really concentrate when reading to understand the concepts outlined.

This book is one that is easy to read and really does provide a clear explanation of the differing leadership theories. I also particularly like the way the author has provided an 'application' for each one and supported his thinking with supporting case studies.
