Description

For undergraduate and graduate courses in Leadership.This text offers a broad review and analysis of the field of leadership, complete with its many debates and controversies. Strong theoretical coverage still allows the book to be applications-oriented-to business and other organizations-on the guiding philosophy and assumption that we can all learn to become better leaders. A strong cross-cultural perspective, focus on leaders' personalities, behavior and leadership situations, and discussion of the role and characteristics of followers complete this treatment.show more
