PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR MGSM876 AT THE MACQUARIE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, SEMESTER 1 2012

Are current concepts of leadership appropriate for today's organizations? What will tomorrow's leadership need to be like? Is there a best approach to leadership? With a huge range of definitions and theories of leadership available, the field has become very confused for both students and practitioners alike.

In Part One, Gayle Avery integrates a fragmented field into four broad paradigms or forms of leadership, helping to simplify and clarify this ill-defined area. The second part provides 10 case studies from leading organizations across Europe, Australia and the USA to illustrate how diverse leadership can be in successful organizations. At the end of each case, specific questions guide the reader in interpreting and analysing the cases, connecting them to the leadership frameworks and theories in Part One, while a list of key issues provides the reader with a quick summary of the main learning points from each case study.

Although Understanding Leadership is written in simple language and requires no prior knowledge of leadership, practising managers will profit from insights generated by the original framework and case studies. With its overview of major theories in the field and presentation of a simple and effective framework for analysing these theories, the book will be essential reading for advanced undergraduate and MBA students.

With a huge range of definitions and theories of leadership available, the field has become confusing for both students and practitioners alike. This text provides a framework for making sense of the field. In Part One, Gayle C Avery integrates a fragmented field into four broad paradigms or forms of leadership, helping to simplify and clarify the ill-defined field of leadership. The second part provides 10 case studies from leading organizations across Europe, Australia and the United States to illustrate how diverse leadership can be in successful organizations. At the end of each case, specific questions guide the reader in interpreting and analyzing the cases, connecting them to the leadership frameworks and theories in Part One.

Written in simple language, Understanding Leadership can be used by readers with no prior knowledge of leadership. With its overview of major theories in the field and presentation of a simple and effective framework for analyzing these theories, the book will be essential reading for advanced undergraduate and MBA students.

Avery has devised a set of powerpoint slides to accompany the book and support lecturers. They are available to view under Sample Materials and Chapters.

COURSE USE: Suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and MBA courses on leadership courses in management, strategy, HRM, public management and business communication.
