9780415618540: Dilemmas of Leadership

Leadership, as a way of focusing and motivating a group or organization to achieve its aims, is a much discussed but often misunderstood concept. This comprehensive textbook introduces the subject for Masters level students.

Building on the success of the first edition, this text utilises an easy to follow, map-based approach to take the reader on a journey through the various fundamental dilemmas apparent within leadership studies, dilemmas such as:

  • Is a leader born or made?
  • How are tensions between ethical dilemmas and economic self-interest resolved?
  • How does a leader's desire for control balance with the need to empower members of the organization?

Student-friendly features new to this edition include a wealth of leadership cases, videos and web-based content regularly updated, so that the book can be studied in the context of the most pressing contemporary leadership issues.

About the Author:

Tudor Rickards is Professor Emeritus at Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK. He previously worked at New York Medical College and as a manager within Unilever plc. He has published and lectured extensively on leadership, creativity, and change management, and is a co-editor of The Routledge Companion to Creativity (Routledge 2009) 

Review:

'Dilemmas of Leadership is the textbook of choice for all Manchester Business School Worldwide leadership courses globally. It is valued by tutors and students for its 'map-making' approach to leadership development through improving decison-making and critical thinking processes.' - Nigel Bannister, Chief Global Officer & MBS Worldwide CEO

'This book does a great job concentrating on leadership topics often neglected within the academic discussion, such as leadership in project teams, symbolic aspects of leadership, or power and politics. Its particular value for students is that the complexity of these topics is highlighted and the subsequent problematic issues of leader action are illuminated.' - Ingo Winkler, University of Southern Denmark

'There has never been a time in our history when leadership has been more important. Tudor Rickards’ Dilemmas of Leadership will help each of us bring the perspectives we need to lead in the twenty-first century.' - Nancy J. Adler, McGill University, Canada

'I have completed the course of leadership at Manchester Business School Worldwide (MBSW). The book Dilemmas of Leadership is one of the best books I have ever read, not only for the academic course, but also in general. It is interesting, although not easy and is full of rich theories covering leadership, compared to other books. I have read the book several times and each time I read it, I deepen my understanding of leadership.' - Samer al Salhi, Student at Manchester Business School Worldwide

'I can say that Dilemmas of Leadership has been the most influential and inspiring book I have ever read, and the concepts presented by Tudor are applicable not only in leadership issues per se, but also in everyday decision making.' - Yaqoob Baqerpour, Student at Manchester Business School Worldwide

Praise for the previous edition:

'The book offers a refreshing look in a field in which it is markedly difficult to make significant advances.' - Creativity and Innovation Management

'This ground-breaking book on the theory and practice of leadership should be studied by all leaders and aspiring leaders. It highlights the latest approaches in the field including trust-based leadership. This text goes beyond the classroom and has much to offer those with leadership roles in corporations, schools, politics, and even the family.' - Monty Roberts, Doctor of Behavioral Science and best-selling author

'Tudor Rickards and Murray Clark have written a well-organized book that is highly accessible to students of a variety of levels. Dilemmas of Leadership also manages to be an interesting read that many researchers in the field will enjoy and benefit from. It provides a novel take on many familiar topics and issues. This is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to dip into the voluminous literature on leadership in organizations.' - Alan Bryman, Professor of Organizational and Social Research, Management Centre, University of Leicester, UK
