Are current concepts of leadership appropriate for today's
organizations? What will tomorrow's leadership need to be like? Is
there a best approach to leadership?
With a huge range of definitions and theories of leadership
available, the field has become confusing for both students and
practitioners alike. This text provides a framework for making
sense of the field. In Part One, Gayle C Avery integrates a
fragmented field into four broad paradigms or forms of leadership,
helping to simplify and clarify the ill-defined field of
leadership. The second part provides 10 case studies from leading
organizations across Europe, Australia and the United States to
illustrate how diverse leadership can be in successful
organizations. At the end of each case, specific questions guide
the reader in interpreting and analyzing the cases, connecting them
to the leadership frameworks and theories in Part One.
Written in simple language, Understanding Leadership can be used
by readers with no prior knowledge of leadership. With its overview
of major theories in the field and presentation of a simple and
effective framework for analyzing these theories, the book will be
essential reading for advanced undergraduate and MBA students.
Avery has devised a set of powerpoint slides to accompany the
book and support lecturers. They are available to view under Sample
