Pierce and Newstroms Leaders and the Leadership Process, 5e is a collection of readings, self-assessments, case studies and experiential exercises on leadership intended to give students a feel for the breadth and richness of this study. The book is organized in to two parts: Part One, divided into 15 chapters, presents a set of readings that will help students understand leaders and the leadership process. Part Two provides readers with additional opportunities to explore leaders and the leadership process via cases, incidents and exercise, which are intended to supplement the conceptual material.Leaders and the Leadership Process, 5e provides students with a sense of the complexity associated with leadership in organizations as well as an understanding of the pieces that serve to define leadership. Self-assessments, which begin most chapters of the book, encourage students to look at their own personal leadership style. The authors use this combination of readings, self-assessments, and applications to create a "leadership mosaic"-- one that encourages students to examine the concepts, propositions, perspectives, and theories individually as it builds towards the students ultimate unique leadership mosaic.
