Whether in the for-profit, not-for-profit, or government sector, organizations today face tough new challenges posed by changing global and domestic environments using diverse workforces. Leaders have to practice different styles appropriate to more complex and dynamic situations than ever before. They need to inspire trust, gain credibility, and implement innovations through others while remaining flexible and adaptable. The contributors to this comprehensive volume seek to define exactly what leadership is or should be, and how to effectively develop it. Guided by a unique framework that looks at leadership across different sectors and functions, they examine what they view as the major leadership challenges in highly visible for-profit, not-for-profit, and government organizations throughout the world. Their insights will prove equally useful as a general survey of leadership problems and solutions for executive policy makers, as well as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Pulitzer Prize–winning historian James MacGregor Burns’s definitive look at the power of transformational leadership, from Moses to Machiavelli to Martin Luther King Jr. Historian and political scientist James MacGregor Burns has spent much of his career documenting the use and misuse of power by leaders throughout history. In this groundbreaking study, Burns examines the qualities that make certain leaders—in America and elsewhere—succeed as transformative figures. Through insightful anecdotes and historical analysis, Burns scrutinizes the charisma, vision, and persuasive power of individuals able to imbue followers with a common sense of purpose, from the founding fathers to FDR, Ghandi to Napoleon. Since its original publication in 1970, Leadership has set the standard for scholarship in the field.
