Description

The first edition of this popular and acclaimed book quickly became a favourite among students for the engaging way in which it guided them through the cacophony of competing perspectives and models of leadership. This new edition includes an expanded discussion of hot topics like followership, gender, ethics, authenticity and leadership and the arts set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis. In teaching you how to critically appraise and work with leadership theories rather than faithfully accept them, this book will not merely make you a better student of leadership; it could make you a better leader too.
