9781412974882: Leadership: Theory and Practice

Adopted at more than 800 colleges and universities worldwide, the market-leading text owes its success to the unique way in which it combines an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with an accessible style and practical exercises that help students apply what they learn. Each chapter follows a consistent format, allowing students to easily contrast the various theories, and three case studies in each chapter provide practical examples of each theory or trait discussed.

Review:

User-friendly theory for students and teachers. Well-structured, clear, and crisp. (Bryan Ginter 2010-03-12)

"It is an excellent primer on the history and fundamental notions of leadership. I am particularly impressed with the presentation of many different types of leadership, the newest forms of leadership, and the case studies." (Derrick B. Barbee 2011-02-10)

"A 'must have' comprehensive presentation of leadership theories from historical to contemporary views. An invaluable resource for students and scholars." (Bonnie M. Beyer)

An affordable text with good coverage of leadership theory and concepts. (James Dittmar 2010-03-19)

Great baseline leadership theories from which to explore more recent research and context-specific discussions of theories. Good case studies for students to work through. (Beth Birmingham 2010-03-19)

Northhouse explains the various leadership theories in understandable bite-size concepts and provides examples to support the explanations. The students actually enjoy the lessons. The study of leadership can be a difficult concept to explain. By theorizing about observed phenomena, we can make predictions that can be tested in the real world as well as in more controlled settings. Northhouse provides this procedure. (Daniel Simone 2010-03-19)

I liked the summary of leadership theory it provides. It is very good overview that is easy to read and understand. There is nothing like this specifically related to higher education. (Linda Kuk 2010-03-19)

The Northouse text offers relevant material pertaining to leadership which can be utilized by any discipline. The case studies at the end of each chapter are priceless. (Patsy Cornelius 2010-03-19)

Great survey text of leadership theory, with leadership inventories connected to each theory presented. (Keith Fulthorp 2010-03-21)

The Northouse book presents a comprehensive view of leadership and the theories associated with leadership behavior. This is an outstanding text to use with a graduate-level leadership course. (Edward L. Bouie, Jr. 2010-03-25)
