Authentic Leadership Theory and Practice: Origins, Effects and Development

April 5, 2011

From the Publisher:

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.

Authentic Leadership Theory and Practice: Origins, Effects and Development, edited by William L. Gardner, Bruce J. Avolio, and Fred O. Walumbwa. Boston : Elsevier JAI, 2005. 438 p. ISBN 0762312378 (hardcover)
