Theory and Practice of Leadership
Second Edition
Roger Gill The Leadership Trust Foundation, Herefordshire
For students and leaders looking for a more holistic and critical take on the field, the Second Edition of this esteemed text offers an exploration of leadership from the head to the toe of an organization – whether that leadership is traditional or virtual, and whether the organization is corporate or non-profit. The first edition has been refined to capture and delineate the essential theories in the study of leadership more clearly, with broader coverage taking in the latest developments in areas such as followership, diversity, national culture, globalization, change, politics and ethics. All of which is explored with abundant examples and illustrations, and links to what it all means in practice.
