February 25, 2014
From the publisher:
This accessible and comprehensive textbook is designed specifically to develop students’ understanding of leadership in a variety of contexts. Drawing upon the author’s extensive practical and academic experience, the book illustrates leadership in action using a wealth of international case studies… from the world of politics, entertainment, and sport; from Ed Milliband, Alan Sugar, and Lance Armstrong to Innocent Drinks, the NHS, and voluntary organisations… The book is divided in to two clear parts, which logically guide the reader through key theoretical concepts underpinning the study of leadership. These include behavioural models, situational theories, and contingency theory. The second part of the book is then devoted to related themes, such as ideas of power, teams, and change…
