About the Author:

Professor Jonathan Gosling is Professor of Leadership at the Centre for Leadership Studies, University of Exeter, specializing in studying the leadership challenges of culturally diverse and boundary-spanning organizations.

His work is published in journals such as Leadership, Harvard Business Review, Organization, Studies in Higher Education and Social Epistemology. His most recent book is Fictional Leaders: Heroes, Villains and Absent Friends, which also includes a chapter by Dr Jones.

Professor Gosling, a graduate of the University of East Anglia, plays a significant role in the ‘greening’ of management education worldwide and is co-founder of the “One Planet MBA” at Exeter. He worked for many years as a community mediator and on other interventions inspired by psychodynamic perspectives on power and organizing.

He is currently researching the leadership of malaria elimination programmes, of sustainable supply chains in China, and of professional organisations (universities, healthcare, accountancy and consultancy firms, etc.). He served as Distinguished Visiting Professor at INSEAD, France and similar roles in Canada, New Zealand and Sweden; is currently a Visiting Professor at Copenhagen Business School, a fellow of the International Management Academy, the Windsor Leadership Trust and of the Singapore Civil Service College. He is co-founder of Coachingourselves.com and is a sailor, spouse and parent.



Dr Stephanie Jones is Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior at Maastricht School of Management, having graduated with a PhD from University College London, and a Bachelor’s degree (in History) from the London School of Economics. Dr Jones has authored over 25 full-length internationally-published books on business and management – three of them with Professor Jonathan Gosling.

She teaches MBA students across the world, especially courses on leadership, culture and change. Her teaching locations include Kuwait, Egypt, Yemen, China, Vietnam, Peru, Surinam, Kazakhstan and several African countries. With a background managing businesses in recruitment, consulting, and training operations in China, India, the Middle East and Australia, Dr Jones gained extensive experience in the corporate sector before returning to academe a decade ago.

She is still active in consulting and training. Dr Jones also supervises student theses, at Doctoral, Masters and Diploma level, assessing and evaluating theses around the world. Napoleonic Leadership: a study in power is her third book with Professor Gosling, the others being Nelson’s Way and Key Concepts in Leadership.

Review:

'Key Concepts in Leadership is an essential addition to available books on leadership. Its interdisciplinary approach, easy to read, easy to use style, while still being grounded in leadership studies, sets this book apart. It is a one-stop shop for essential concepts in leadership and will be an essential book for managers and leaders from all walks of life. Key Concepts in Leadership provides balanced insights, discussion and a wealth of information around one of the most important topics in the world today, leadership' -
Prof. Dr. Danica Purg
President IEDC-Bled School of Management

'This is not your ordinary leadership book! Gosling and colleagues provide a fascinating and brilliant new way to look at leadership that distills a century of research into an easily accessible and inherently relevant compilation of leadership styles. This volume includes the classics, such as authoritarian and participative leadership, as well as styles uniquely the authors' own, like the "chillaxed" and the "leadaholic"'
Mary Uhl-Bien, Co-Director
Institute for Innovative Leadership, College of Business Administration, US

'The idea behind this book is to present readers with an opportunity to reflect upon the different approaches to and ways of thinking about being a leader. Each leadership style is contrasted with its alternative and in the process the reader is drawn into the relevant literature and into a consideration of real leaders' experiences. This is a highly original and extremely illuminating way of introducing the field of leadership studies and encouraging people to ponder their own approach to leadership. Anyone with an interest in this field and who is drawn into a leadership role should read this book as soon as possible'
Alan Bryman
Professor of Organisational and Social Research, School of Management, University of Leicester, UK
