This third edition of Leadership in Organizations: Current Issues and Key Trends builds on the success of the previous versions, with new and updated chapters providing fresh and lively insights into a subject that can often be tricky to pin down.
Leadership in Organizations carefully balances theory and practice, including critical perspectives, to examine fundamental questions about the meaning of leadership, its use and its development. Readers will benefit from the text’s rich use of cases and examples of real-life tensions, challenges and successful outcomes of leadership practice. The book also sets itself apart through its distinctive focus on leadership within the wider contexts of politics, economics and public policy, as well as organizational behaviour and management.
New elements for this edition include:
- The moral pitfalls of leadership
- Leadership roles under crisis conditions
- Fresh analysis of the impact of leadership on performance outcomes
This is the ideal text for advanced students of leadership studies, as well as practitioners looking to deepen their understanding of the leadership process and to enhance their leadership skills.
