Description - Leadership as Identity by Jackie Ford

Management has failed; its successor is leadership. Can leadership fulfil the promises that are made in its name? This book is written for those charged with being leaders, and uses poststructuralist theory to provide a language for the confusions and uncertainties that leadership can often bring.
