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 provide practical examples of the theories discussed.

“This is a great textbook that provides the foundational theories of leadership. The book achieves a critical balance of providing scholarly research and practitioner perspectives. Case studies, class activities and leadership surveys provide an integrative perspective of individual, team and organizational leadership styles and practices”

What a great resource!Great book - Great case studies for the students - Easy to use. My students fine this book very sharpened and readable.
