The second edition of Leadership offers a unique, highly-applied academic treatise on leadership, uniquely blending a chronological analysis of the last 100 years of leadership theory with exclusive CEO interviews. The case studies, expert insights and other teaching aids are timely and hard hitting, making this textbook relevant, insightful and informative, while a research chapter empowers the reader to competently question the leaders that shape our world. The world has turned on its political and corporate axis since the first edition of Leadership was published, and it became necessary to produce a second edition that fully encapsulated, respected and observed these changes. Numerous new case studies, discussion starters and examples subsequently reflect today’s volatile technological, political, financial and social shifts, while exclusive interviews with successful CEOs powerfully blend theory with practice. Readers will learn the importance of navigating leadership in the most testing of times. A new chapter, ‘Researching leadership’, offers the reader the opportunity to develop significantly as a leadership researcher and to ably question reality in a post-truth world. A self-leadership chapter equips the reader to develop their own leadership capabilities, while retaining the ability to avoid destructive leadership. Ultimately, readers will become empowered to appreciate the complex, intersectional nature of leadership and to learn what it takes to lead in today’s politically, technologically and socially tumultuous world. This book will be particularly engaging for students and educators at secondary school, college, undergraduate and postgraduate level, and for leadership/management consultants. While the book's primary role remains as a core text for leadership, management and business modules, it will also be of interest to students on many other courses (e.g. psychology, politics, sociology). Packed with teaching resources which educators will find particularly useful, Leadership is the only textbook of its kind to offer such an applied view of this subject via the inclusion of 12 (mostly CEO) expert insights. The first edition was an "Amazon Hot New Release", so this second edition might also hold interest for a general readership.

Leadership: The Current State of Play defines contemporary thinking in leadership from both academic and practitioner perspectives. It presents an easy-to-read overview of historical and contemporary thought on the roles and functions of leaders and applies these perspectives to problems in the present day. This book offers insights for professionals in organisational leadership positions in a variety of sectors in the UK and beyond. It is also of great interest to researchers and students in the fields of business and management. Across the study’s four chapters, there are nine vignettes written by leading practitioners of organisational leadership in various fields, including clinical dentistry, the Ministry of Defence, charities and football management. These vignettes offer a unique opportunity to hear the voices of individuals who are rarely considered in such leadership literature. Their reflections illustrate the benefit of approaching leadership through the eyes of those practicing it.

Leadership, Business & Economics -> Management -> Leadership
Publisher: HarperCollins Canada
General Rick Hillier' s views on leadership evolved over his three decades as a soldier. Early in his career he watched as many of his superiors made bad decisions. Later he learned at the school of hard knocks as the head of emergency rescue operations in Canada and international task forces in eastern Europe and Afghanistan. Never one to be shy with his opinions, Hillier is as frank and straightforward in Leadership as he is in his #1 bestselling memoir, A Soldier First. For Hillier, leadership is all about people— embracing those you are in charge of and winning over those you need to work with— not about risk aversion or management fads. Leaders think long and have a plan. Their actions speak, not their words, and they make their own luck. But leaders also act out of moral courage, take advantage of crises, accept failure and remain perpetually optimistic. Whether on the front lines of a business or in any situation that requires strong communication and vision, leaders go with their gut and make the tough decisions look easy. Leadership is an inspirational, easy-to-read and, in true Hillier fashion, often humorous collection of fifty principles that will challenge the way you run your business, start a project or take that next step in life.

Leadership It's in Your DNA
General, Business & Economics -> Business -> Business Studies, SNT, TR
Publisher: Bloomsbury UK
Taking in an amazing range of nationalities - British, Arabic, Chinese, Indian, Greek, Italian, American, Korean - in Leadership: It's in Your DNA Rhea Duttagupta examines how her interviewees became leaders, what worked for them, mistakes they've learned from and risks they've taken. From boardroom politics to the challenges faced by the first female commissioner of Asian police tasked with transforming the world's one of the most corrupt prisons, the stories are diverse, inspirational and instructional. This book provides readers with a framework of ten ingredients distilled from Rhea's extensive experience and research. She argues that these ingredients are innate within us and that if we recognise their importance and enhance them within ourselves, they'll help us maximise our achievements and our leadership qualities.
