Leadership, as a way of focusing and motivating a group or organization to achieve its aims, is a much discussed but often misunderstood concept. This comprehensive textbook introduces the subject for Masters level students.
Building on the success of the first edition, this text utilises an easy to follow, map-based approach to take the reader on a journey through the various fundamental dilemmas apparent within leadership studies, dilemmas such as:
Is a leader born or made?
How are tensions between ethical dilemmas and economic self-interest resolved?
How does a leader's desire for control balance with the need to empower members of the organization?
Student-friendly features new to this edition include a wealth of leadership cases, videos and web-based content regularly updated, so that the book can be studied in the context of the most pressing contemporary leadership issues.
