For MBA and upper-level undergraduate courses in Leadership, Organizational Behavior, and Change.This brief paperback outlines a practical, contemporary model for making a difference as a leader in the Information Age-one which goes well beyond the single, behavior-focused leadership style (Level One) typically associated with Industrial-Age organizations to encompass opportunities to influence people and their thinking (Level Two Leadership), and their values and basicassumptions about how the world operates (Level Three Leadership). Drawing on the work of a wide range of scholars and authors in the field of leadership and managing change, it integrates theory and practice to create the model and a set of related perspectives and concepts about how students can become better leaders not only in their own lives, but in their work group, and in their organizations. Questions for Reflection throughout and an innovative Workbook section help students explore their own values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations about what it means to be an effective leader-and suggest ways to grow and develop their leadership skills.show more
