About this item

Little is known of how leadership actually happens in the Australasian context. Most of the theory and case study material in leadership is drawn from the US, where leadership examples are most frequently drawn from the business arena and focus largely on white males. This is not a true reflection of the diversity of Australasian society, nor of local and regional leadership.
Leadership: Modernizing our Perspective, Second Edition, is a fresh and original look at leadership from a local perspective—yet with a global theme. The book contains three parts.
Part I allows the reader to develop an understanding of the concepts that underpin leadership performance and to undertake a variety of exercises to develop a comprehensive understanding of their values, behaviors and personality. That is, to understand who they are and why they behave the way they do.
Part B exposes the reader to a number of general leadership theories which provide an opportunity for them to articulate their own view of what leadership is. It also explores the relationship between leader, followers and context.
Part C raises a number of issues that leaders will face in contemporary society, and looks at the skills that will be required to address them in their own particular industrial and cultural context. This allows the reader to explore the concept of leadership in contexts with which they are familiar, and with their own strengths and areas for learning in mind.
