LEADERSHIP, 4th Edition is intended for the undergraduate course titled "Leadership". The course is typically found in the department of management but is also offered occasionally through the ROTC program and education departments.
"The content is comprehensive and well-organized. I believe the topics are organized in a nice "stair-stepping" method so that each topic builds upon the previous. The first several chapters dealing with the "individual" as a leader are clear and concise. The chapters take an in-depth look at leaders and what it entails to be a leader—but it is done in an easy-to-read manner."
"I appreciate the amount and application of leadership theories. This book contains the best balance between theory and practice, and ties them together nicely."
This text focuses on the development of leadership skills and knowledge. It can be used for undergraduate and graduate leadership courses in schools of business, public administration, health care, education, psychology, and sociology. It covers traditional leadership theories, individuals as leaders, team leadership, and organizational leadership. Self-assessments, role plays, and exercises are included. Behavior models with step-by-step guidelines show how to handle leadership responsibilities such as giving instructions and coaching. Other learning aids include quizes, discussion questions, and cases. No prior coursework in business or management is required. Lussier is affiliated with Springfield College. Achua is affiliated with the University of Virginia-Wise. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
