In this fully up to date Eight Edition of Leadership: Theory and Practice, a new chapter on Followership examines the central role followers play within the leadership process and unpacks the characteristics of both effective and ineffective followers. The brand new edition also features a new Ethical Leadership Style Questionnaire and new coverage at 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 every chapter, allowing students to simply compare and contrast the more than a few theories. Case studies and questionnaires provide students with practical examples and opportunities to deepen their personal working out of their very own leadership.
