The Art and Science of Leadership
This volume 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. The author presents the building blocks of leadership, contingency models, current developments and applications such as participative management and teams, change-oriented leadership and the strategic leadership. For middle and upper level managers.
