Drawing on personal narrative accounts and lessons from the complexity sciences, this book examines conventional leadership development methodologies, identifying what is useful and what is not. It offers an alternative perspective and framework for business schools, consultancies and corporate training functions to adopt in their development of leaders. Rethinking Leadership Development will be essential reading for advanced students and researchers of leadership development, leadership studies, human resource management and organizational development. It will also be of interest to management educators and practising managers whose experience of, or aspirations for, working life are not represented in mainstream academic texts and popular management literature.show more
