Description - Leadership by Marian Iszatt-White
Written by an author team from one of Europe's leading management schools, Leadership encourages critical appraisal of the mainstream viewpoints and personal reflection on leadership experience in a way that is both clear and highly engaging.Divided into four parts, the book brings together core themes and debates within the field and provides a wealth of diverse real-world case studies to help readers make the transition from theory to practice. The first part of the book, 'Defining the Terrain', lays the foundation for subsequent chapters by exploring what we mean by leadership, how it compares to management, and why we study it. The second and third parts of the book build on this, addressing core topics that have shaped leadership thinking for academics and practitioners over the last fifty years; as well as considering the cutting-edge debates within the field and tackling issues such as leadership-as-practice, strategic leadership, ethical leadership, and leading change. Finally, the fourth part, 'Developing Leaders', explores traditional and state-of-the-art development techniques, before encouraging the reader to consider their own leadership through identity work. Leadership mappings in the final chapter assimilate the range of theories and themes from the previous chapters, providing a framework for comparisons and connections throughout the book.In addition to the book's thematic approach, carefully designed learning features invite readers to exercise critical thinking skills and develop their own practice and perspectives on the material presented. New to this Edition:A new chapter on leadership-as-practice highlights a movement that is still being developed within the field. It encourages students to question how a practice view of leadership compares with more traditional notions of transformational, visionary, and charismatic leadership.The content is now further balanced to reflect both 'good' and 'bad' leadership, with a new chapter on followership, bad, and toxic leadership.Links to the films, TV shows, books etc. used in the 'Leadership in the media' boxes are now included in the video links online resource, giving lecturers more opportunities to better tie the book to their teaching.Revised case studies throughout now include contemporary figures, bodies and companies such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, BP, Ray Kelvin, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Theresa May.
