Introduction to Leadership: Concepts and Practice (3rd Revised edition)
By: Peter G. Northouse (author)Paperback
Praise for the previous edition: 'Introduction to Leadership: Concepts and Practice demonstrates Northouse's depth and breadth of experience as an academician and consultant. He is patently passionate about communicating not only the essence of leadership but the manner in which thoughtful leadership can transform people, communities, and organizations.' - Journal of Leadership Studies Three interactive components in every chapter--self-assessment questionnaires, observational exercises, and reflection and action worksheets--get readers actively involved in applying leadership concepts to their own lives. Grounded in leadership theory, yet accessible and reader-friendly, this book covers a fundamental aspect of leadership in each chapter and illustrates its application in real leadership situations. A final chapter discusses the key topic of ethics in leadership.
