2 Reviews

Theory and Practice of Leadership provides a comprehensive and critical review of the major theories of leadership and clearly lays out a more holistic understanding of leadership that integrates the disparate approaches and theories. Throughout the book, Roger Gill uses illustrative examples and cases, drawn from research and practice in the UK, mainland Europe, and the USA as well as Asia and elsewhere, enabling students to better relate the theories to real cases and their own experience. A clear picture of leadership theory and leadership development is set out through accessible language and a focus on bridging the gap between theory and practice.
