Description

In this fully updated Eight Edition of Leadership: Theory and Practice, a new chapter on Followership examines the central role followers play in the leadership process and unpacks the characteristics of both effective and ineffective followers. The new edition also includes a new Ethical Leadership Style Questionnaire and new coverage on the dark side of leadership and destructive leadership.

Adopted at more than 1600 institutions in 89 countries and translated into 13 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 special emphasis on how leadership theory can inform leadership practice. Peter G. Northouse uses a consistent structure for each chapter, allowing students to easily compare and contrast the various theories. Case studies and questionnaires provide students with practical examples and opportunities to deepen their personal understanding of their own leadership.

The general impression of the book:

Extremely helpful. This book was described as "used" and I don't believe it was even cracked open once. Beautiful condition, fast shipping, outstanding book for any student of leadership to have in their toolbox of leadership resources. Thank you!

Organization of the book:

Extremely clear, logical, and consistent. Easy to follow.

Negative aspects of the book:

It is a "heady" book. Not an easy read--but useful for understanding these ideas in the long run.
