For students and leaders looking for a more holistic and critical take on the field, the Second Edition of this esteemed text offers an exploration of leadership from the head to the toe of an organization - whether that leadership is traditional or virtual, and whether the organization is corporate or non-profit. The first edition has been refined to capture and delineate the essential theories in the study of leadership more clearly, with broader coverage taking in the latest developments in areas such as followership, diversity, national culture, globalisation, change, politics and ethics. All of which is explored with abundant examples and illustrations, and links to what it all means in practice.A critical take is maintained throughout, with evaluations of the strengths and weaknesses of current thinking, and how it shapes our understanding of leadership, theory and practice.This text is supported by a companion website with lecture slides, tutor guide, case studies and online readings.Praise for the first edition:'It is very well organised in terms of the relevant theories, research, case studies of appropriate companies and plenty of quotes from leading chief executive officers and others in leadership roles.... As a text for undergraduates or postgraduates, it is a good buy, full of useful material' - Professor Cary L Cooper, The Times Higher'The book will appeal to anyone who is serious about knowing more about leadership and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to aspiring and established managers and clinicians who want to further develop their leadership skills' - Learning Disability Practice
