Book Description

This concise textbook seeks to unpack the real-life complexities of leadership by examining the theories and models surrounding it and encouraging self-analysis in the individual’s own contexts.

The book:

  • Provides an outline knowledge of the various perspectives of leadership theory;
  • Develops a critical and robust framework for considering existing leadership theory and consequently applying leadership practice across the organisation;
  • Identifies individual and important characteristics likely to enhance leadership practice in the workplace;
  • Considers a framework for analysing leadership performance and methods and practicalities for application.

Reflexive Leadership in Context provides a practical and concise introduction for executive education students currently studying for MSc/MBA apprenticeship programmes, as well as supplementary reading for postgraduate students studying modules within Leadership and Management.
