This book offers a much-needed corrective to this orthodoxy by focusing on current research and thinking about 'leadership' rather than 'leaders. A wide range of prominent international contributors present a rare self critical look at their own assertions and test alternative leadership models against recent research projects. They also demonstrate how their analysis is relevant to all countries where leadership is an issue.
Major features include:
] alternative theories to understanding
the nature of leadership
] how leadership could be analyzed
] re-analysis of recent research carried out by contributors in the light of one or more of the alternative theories examined
] implications of the alternative perspectives for leadership training
This book is recommended to all staff and students involved in educational leadership, management or administration programmes.
