Description

Featuring more than twenty-five case studies of leaders throughout history, A Casebook of Transformational and Transactional Leadership supplements existing texts on transformational leadership and the full range model to promote higher levels of understanding of transformational and transactional leadership behaviors.

Beginning with an overview of transformational and transactional behavior components, Arenas describes the original tenets of leadership researchers, demonstrating how practicing the principles of full range leadership can aid those who guide or manage others. The subsequent chapters examine influential figures from various organizational environments to provide readers with examples that connect with core full range leadership concepts. Finally, each chapter ends with a discussion question, helping to engage students with the material and encouraging further reflection and study.

A Casebook of Transformational and Transactional Leadership is essential reading for both graduate and undergraduate students of leadership development, as well as military and non-military professionals in leadership, leadership development, business and management, and education.

Reviews

"This book is an excellent supplement for teaching leadership to any audience, but especially those with an interest in historically important leaders across divergent settings. Memorable, real life examples that just jump off every page."

—John Hollenbeck, Michigan State University

"For those who continue to search for a companion volume offering case studies for leadership discussions, Dr. Arenas has delivered a collection of leadership cases from across history well suited to illuminate towering leaders who transformed their worlds. The questions following each case study in A Casebook of Transformational and Transactional Leadership will arouse discussion, stir deep feelings, and call for personal transformation."

—Andrew Stricker, Air University
