Synopsis:

Providing a comprehensive review of the major behavior patterns that effective leaders use to influence followers, this book keys in on what effective leaders really do and emphasizes how leaders can diagnose and modify situations and followers to make their leadership a more positive and productive endeavor. Organized into an easy-to-follow four-part structure: Part I introduces the concept of leadership, the approach of the book, and descriptions and evaluations of several currently popular situational leadership theories. Part II describes the five core leadership behavior patterns (supportiveness, directiveness, participation, reward/punishment, and charismatic behavior). Part III examines less-researched leader behavior patterns such as boundary-spanning, building social exchanges, and followership. Part IV describes the current leadership issues of ethics, diversity, leadership development, and change, with a concluding chapter that integrates findings from earlier chapters and describes popular leadership styles that are combinations of the specific leader behaviors described earlier. For leadership roles found in business, nursing, military science, criminal justice, education, government or agriculture.


Review:

What defines a true leader? Is it someone who dutifully follows the latest leadership model or theory accepted by our culture?

InUnderstanding Behaviors for Effective Leadership, Howell and Costley take a unique approach to leadership. By de-emphasizing leadership theories and focusing on the actual behaviors of successful leaders, this book will help you gain a thorough understanding of why effective leaders are known by what they do — not by what they say.

Organized into three parts for easy comprehension, the book provides valuable information on what effective leaders do, how they do it, and when they use key behaviors.

Inside, you'll find:

  • Examples in every chapter that highlight current and historical leaders who exhibit the behaviors and styles presented by the authors.
  • The characteristics of an effective leader, and how they demonstrate these traits to followers.
  • Self-assessment exercises designed to help you comprehend and apply the concepts, as you learn them.
  • Experiential exercises, short cases, illustrations, and figures that work together to help you apply the material to real leadership situations.
