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 cross-cultural perspective, gender-based analyses, focus on leaders' personalities and behavior, and discussion on the role and characteristics of followers complete this treatment.
