Leadership scholars have made many inroads in understanding leadership. However, making sense of thousands of studies and hundreds of books is a difficult endeavour, which is why many still incorrectly think that leadership is an elusive phenomenon. The Nature of Leadership is the first concise and integrated volume that addresses current issues in leadership research, including emerging topics such as gender, culture, and ethics. More than ever before, leadership is seen as critical for the proper functioning of societies and social institutions. Written by a team of leading experts, this book will provide compelling answers to the most vexing questions surrounding leadership.
“The Nature of Leadership is a masterful state-of-the-art-and-science compendium written to appeal to researchers, students, and practitioners of leadership. This book covers the leadership landscape with both breadth and depth of knowledge and practice possible only from real experts and their proteges. It will be off my bookshelf often, as I plan to use it regularly.” (Fran Yammarino)
"In The Nature of Leadership, Antonakis, Cianciolo, and Sternberg provide a thorough review of the state of leadership research. I was impressed with the reviews of research methods, leadership assessment, the influence of context, and ethics. It is a must read for those who teach leadership." (Robert Hooijberg)
"The Nature of Leadership will be useful to anyone with an interest in leadership. Its relevance extends beyond business to other social sciences and humanities disciplines as well..." (CHOICE 2005-01-06)
"All in all, the book will be of use to both the general reader and serious academics interested in the phenomena of leadership. What is commendable is the range of issues and perspectives that have been brought together and the interesting research leads pointed out all through." (IIM Bangalore 2005-11-01)
"We have in this compendium of chapters a nice jumping-off point for another generation of research and practice. I will return to it often to guide future research efforts or, more importantly, to guide others in their thinking. This is not a topic that is going away, and part of our job as professionals in this field is to have a keen and critical eye twoard research on leadership effectiveness and what is useful, what is good practice, and when someone makes statements or conclusions that are not justified by the data. Each will find something worthwhile here. In fact, I will be surprised if something in here does not challenge your thinking on a topic by 90 degrees." (David W. Bracken, Senior Consultant)
