About The Book

Adopted at more than 1,000 colleges and universities worldwide, the market-leading text owes its success to the unique way in which it combines an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with an accessible style and practical exercises that help students apply what they learn. Each chapter follows a consistent format, allowing students to contrast the various theories. Three case studies in each chapter also provide practical examples of the theories discussed.

Though the book would be very useful as textbook for students, it will also offer a comprehensive guide to those who are already in the business. This revised edition has new chapter that examines the latest research on culture, its dimensions and ways in which culture affects the leadership process.
