Overview

This landmark book, by Edwin P. Hollander, a noted organizational social psychologist and long-time contributor to leadership research and practice, highlights the leader-follower relationship as central to effective leadership. Inclusive Leadership is a process of active followership emphasizing follower needs and expectations, with the guiding principle of "Doing things with people, not to people," in a two-way influence relationship. The book provides strong theoretical and empirical guidance for leadership development and includes many of Hollander’s key original papers. Each is updated in a chapter with his new reflective commentary, including those on "Interdependence," "Women and Leadership," "Power and Leadership," "Legitimacy," "Ethical Challenges," "Idiosyncrasy Credit," and "Civil Liberties." Six new chapters begin with an "Overview of Inclusive Leadership," identifying distinctive concepts and practices, and an "Historical Background." There also are new chapters on such topics as "Applications," "Presidential Leadership," and "College and University Leadership." It concludes with "Lessons from Experience,"a revealing "Afterword" on his career, and comprehensive Bibliography.

Enriching our practical understanding of the leader-follower relationship, with many real-world examples, this book should be a basic addition to anyone’s library on leadership. Students of leadership, management, organizational psychology and behavior, business, sociology, education, political science, and public policy, will find it informative about successful practices of "Inclusive Leadership," and their applications to leadership events.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this book and indeed throughout his distinguished career, Hollander has "shined the bright light" on the importance of the followership in the study of human behavior. That focus, alone, makes Hollander’s book distinctive and unique. Almost single-handedly, through the force of his impeccable and creative research, he has altered, indeed transformed, our view of leadership by insisting on the study of followership. His stance and tone are just right and his writing is lovely" - Georgia Sorenson, Research Director and Founding Director, James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership, University of Maryland

"I liked the presidency chapter tremendously. I was very impressed with the weaving together of the theories and research from some years ago with current issues and worries in presidential leadership." - George R. Goethals, Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond

"This book will be one of the "must have" volumes for the libraries of all serious leadership scholars and students in the field." - David Vaughn Day, University of Western Australia, Crawley

"I learn more from Ed Hollander about leadership in a few pages than I learn from other leadership scholars in whole books." -Terry L. Price, Associate Dean, Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond

"Inclusive Leadership is an engaging book that will appeal to a variety of audiences...[it is] an important addition to any leadership researcher's library. Inclusive leadership is as applicable in the executive suite as it is with a crew cleaning a hotel suite; the budding shift supervisor or community leader may not have the authority or opportunity to be transformational, yet any leader at any level has the responsibility to engage their followers. Inclusive leadership is for everyman and everywoman." - The Psychological Record, Donald A. Hantula, Temple University, 2009, 59, 701-704
