Leadership: Theory and Practice
Leadership: Theory and Practice, Fifth Edition is the market-leading survey text for leadership courses across disciplines. Author Peter Northouse combines an academically robust account of major theories, approaches, models, and themes of leadership with an accessible style and numerous practical exercises to allow students to apply what they learn about leadership both to themselves and to specific contexts and situations. The book is divided into fifteen chapters, which cover all of the key aspects in the leadership field: defining leadership; trait approaches; skills approaches; style approaches; situational approach; contingency theory; path-goal theory; leader-member exchange theory; authentic leadership; transformational leadership; team leadership; psychodynamic approach; diversity and leadership; culture and leadership, and leadership ethics. Enhancing the academic coverage are new case examples, questions for reflection, and leadership instruments and questionnaires that promote a more interactive and enriching experience for students.
