Product Description

Used at more than 1500 institutions in 89 countries and translated into 12 different languages, this market-leading text successfully combines an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with an accessible style and practical examples that help students apply what they learn.

New to the 8th edition:

  • A new chapter on Followership looks at the important role followers play in leadership, covering both effective followership (how followers can help leaders accomplish goals) and ineffective followership (why followers sometimes accept toxic leadership). The chapter also includes a self-assessment on followership as well as three new cases: BlueBird Care (an in-home health care agency), Olympic Rowers (1936 Olympic rowing team), and Penn State Sexual Abuse Scandal.
  • A new questionnaire in the chapter on Leadership Ethical Style assesses a leader’s style of ethical leadership and will help leaders understand their decision-making preferences when confronting ethical dilemmas.
  • New coverage of destructive leadership, the dark side of leadership, and psuedotransformational leadership has been included.

Key features:

  • A chronological approach that traces how leadership thought has developed over time
  • A consistent format throughout the chapters that allows students to compare the various theories
  • A leadership instrument and questionnaire within each chapter, providing self-assessment and reflection opportunities for each theory presented.
