Due to the students different learning styles and additional learning needs we have adopted a selection of books for the students to select a preference. I have shared these with our library.
I decided not to adopt this text as I did not want to infringe upon a colleague's Level 7 module titled "Leadership and Management in Mental Health Nursing". I am the module leader for Part 3 MSc practice and the lines can be easily blurred between the two modules.
Galloway presents an engaging and enlightening perspective of leadership by way of a detailed critical review of established theories and models of leadership before then critically evaluating new trends and perspectives contingent on executing the role of leader.
The text is suitable for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students reading the whole suite of Business Management and Leadership and Management modules.
The book includes some interesting topics as is the case of diversity, culture and ethics that can be interesting for students to have a deep more understanding of these topics besides the information I debate in classes
Excellent Text, more useful for BA course, however, I may adopt a chapter from the text.
The book provides many thought provoking considerations in relation to leadership and hence this is on the reading list of the module.
Clear , focussed, interesting and most useful text
This is a. user friendly text with a practitioner focus. Perfect for MBA students.
Laura Galloway adopts an easy to read and engaging text that revisits, and reinforces, the established theories of leadership through varied and thought provoking perspectives. The use of continuous "Perspectives from Practice" engage with the reader to evaluate real leaders, in real life situations, experiences and challenges before inviting the reader to evaluate critique and justify their decisions and actions. An excellent text of Undergraduate and Postgraduate students reading Business and Management, Leadership and Management and Strategic Leadership modules.
