This book explores the different facets and wide-ranging approaches to leadership – from the evolution of leadership with a focus on traits, to critically assessing various styles and approaches to leadership. Chapters explore social constructionist approaches to leadership; relational leadership; ethics, leadership and strategic HRM; power and the dark side of leadership, as well as the implications of leadership in the digital era and leadership in an age of increased surveillance. The book critiques the domination of Western, white, and masculine centric approaches to leadership while examining the gendering and racialisation of leadership, and issues pertaining to exclusion and inclusion.
· Non-Western case studies that give a truly global outlook.
· A Decolonising Leadership feature that highlights diverse sources and perspectives to encourage you to look beyond the traditional leadership canon.
· Reflective questions that encourage critical thinking.
Suitable for upper undergraduate and postgraduate students studying leadership.
