9781452203409: Leadership: Theory and Practice, 6th Edition

Adopted at more than 1,000 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 of Peter Northouse’s Leadership: Theory and Practice follows a consistent format, allowing students to contrast the various theories, and three case studies in each chapter provide practical examples of each theory or trait discussed. The Sixth Edition adds an important new chapter on Servant Leadership.

Review:

“This is a great textbook that provides the foundational theories of leadership. The book achieves a critical balance of providing scholarly research and practitioner perspectives. Case studies, class activities and leadership surveys provide an integrative perspective of individual, team and organizational leadership styles and practices” (Meera Alagaraja 2011-10-28)

What a great resource!Great book - Great case studies for the students - Easy to use. My students fine this book very sharpened and readable. I describe this bookas a pinch of background of what leadership is. This book is one of the rare book that presents Servant leadership in a new form for both instructors and students. (Dr. Oris Guillaume 2012-02-14)

A seminal work; a keeper! (Paul W. Decker 2012-03-09)

It provides a comprehensive and concise coverage of many leadership approaches. This text has the best on-line support for instructors and students I have ever seen. (Tom Taylor 2012-03-09)
