Overview

In this essential new text, Rickards and Clark encourage students and practitioners alike to delve deeper into leadership complexities and to discover what's new and important by testing and re-drawing their leadership 'maps': their aspirations of leadership.

This exciting text reviews issues such as transactional leadership, transformational leadership, 5th level leadership, servant leadership, and the management of ethical dilemmas, and in illustrating the confusions and contradictions of leadership, it develops an approach that will prove invaluable. Important issues covered include:

  • trust based leadership
  • social identity explanations of leadership
  • distributed leadership
  • 'tipping point' theory of transformational change.

The book’s structure, insightful writing style and original approach encourage readers to reflect critically on the relationship between theory and practice as each theme is addressed and accompanying case studies examined.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The book offers a refreshing look in a field in which it is markedly difficult to make significant advances.' - Creativity and Innovation Management

'This ground-breaking book on the theory and practice of leadership should be studied by all leaders and aspiring leaders. It highlights the latest approaches in the field including trust-based leadership. This text goes beyond the classroom and has much to offer those with leadership roles in corporations, schools, politics, and even the family.' - Monty Roberts, Doctor of Behavioral Science and best-selling author

'Tudor Rickards and Murray Clark have written a well-organized book that is highly accessible to students of a variety of levels. Dilemmas of Leadership also manages to be an interesting read that many researchers in the field will enjoy and benefit from. It provides a novel take on many familiar topics and issues. This is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to dip into the voluminous literature on leadership in organizations.' - Alan Bryman, Professor of Organizational and Social Research, Management Centre, University of Leicester, UK
