The Sixth Edition of Pierce and Newstrom's Leaders and the Leadership Process 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. Leaders and the Leadership Process 6e 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. The authors create a "leadership mosaic," which encourages students to examine the concepts, propositions, perspectives, and theories individually as they build towards the student's ultimate unique leadership mosaic.
