This book introduces the pivotal theories of organizational leadership behavior in a direct, comprehensive manner. By design, it is written to challenge, change, and expand the leadership behaviors of readers. Clearly organized, it exposes readers to Closed Systems theories from the first half of the 20th century, Open (Contingency) theories from the mid- century, and current postmodern or anti-positivistic theories. For anyone in a leadership role—or anyone trying to achieve one, and interested in examining their own leadership behavior.
