Overview

Leadership: Understanding Its Global Impact is a fresh and original look at leadership from a local perspective—yet with a global theme. Throughout, profiles of leaders—drawn from around the world—are included to reflect the reality of the world in which today’s students live.

* Covers the latest theory of leadership including global leadership.
* Written in an engaging style with accessible language.
* Twelve ’leader in action’ profiles include US President Barack Obama.
* Twelve global case studies, reflecting the gender, cultural and age diversity of students in the 21st century, include: Kevin Rudd, Dick Smith, Ban Ki-moon, World Vision Australia, and Noel Pearson.
* Includes: reflections, practical activities, review questions and a self-assessment in each chapter.

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.
