Leadership: Contemporary Critical Perspectives
Written from a global and critical perspective with a diverse range of cases and examples throughout, this is an inspiring read for developing leaders operating within global and multicultural work settings.
‘Power’ is taken as central theme for this book, opening up discussion about issues that are often neglected in leadership texts i.e. fairness, equity, justice, resistance, conflict, emancipation, oppression, rationality, politics, globalization, the natural environment, and knowledge.
New to this edition:
- A new prologue: ‘An Unconventional History of Leadership Studies′
- A new epilogue on ‘Embodied Leadership, Ethics, and its Affects’ written by David Knights, one of the authors of Embodied Research Methods (pub April 2019)
- 3 new topical integrative case studies, based on current events: Jacinda Ar-dern’s pregnancy when PM; #MeToo; and Suma Foods co-operative
- Updated research and pedagogical features throughout, including the ‘Leadership on Screen’ feature
The book is complemented by a range of online resources including PowerPoint slides, videos of the book’s authors providing an overview of the chapter and discussing why the topic is important, access to journal articles discussed in the book, and links to additional relevant material.
