9780415557054: Leadership in Organizations: Current Issues and Key Trends

Leadership has proved a tricky beast to pin down and the subject has been approached from a variety of perspectives over the years. The beauty of this textbook lies in its role as an illustrative guide though the wilds of an elusive discipline.

 

This second edition of Leadership in Organizations: Current Issues and Key Trends offers a balanced combination of theory and practice to provide an up-to-date account of this multi-faceted topic. Looking at the international and comparative aspects of leadership, Storey also discusses new modes of leadership that will be required to steer organizations to success in a recessive environment. Topics include:

 

  • Changing theories of leadership
  • Strategy and leadership
  • Ethics and leadership
  • Leadership development in public sector organizations
  • Followership and distributed leadership
  • Leadership development in multi-national firms

 

With improved pedagogical features, this new edition is the ideal text for students of leadership studies, as well as practitioners looking to enhance their leadership skills.

Review:

Praise for the previous edition:

'Leadership in Organizations is a particularly thought-provoking book... Storey and his collaborators have performed a valuable service by providing us with a more practical route through what often seems like an almost impenetrable forest of leadership scholarship and debates.' - The Journal of Industrial Relations

'A useful, well-written, well-edited and thought-provoking book.' - Human Resource Management Journal
