    Leadership, Power, and Politics gathers articles written by renowned leadership scholars that immerse students in theories and research on leading and influencing others. The anthology helps readers gain thorough knowledge and understanding they can put to practical use as they develop their own leadership practice.

    Part 1 of the collection introduces the topic of leadership effectiveness and clarifies what effective leaders do that others do not. Part 2 focuses on the characteristics of leaders, providing valuable information on a group of variables that have been found to be associated with leadership effectiveness—emotional intelligence, intelligence, and extraversion. In Part 3, students are exposed to key leadership theories and research and are challenged to think critically regarding the many different conceptualizations of leadership. Part 4 speaks to destructive leadership, illuminating personal characteristics and psychological disorders that can render individuals unfit to lead. In the final part, readers learn how to use power and influence to achieve goals and make positive contributions.

    An enlightening and unique collection, Leadership, Power, and Politics is an excellent resource for courses in organizational behavior and business.
