Overview

This edited volume explores different models, conceptualizations, and measures of leader interpersonal and influence "soft skills" that are so necessary for effective leadership. These include the communication skills, persuasion skills, political savvy, and emotional abilities used by leaders to inspire, motivate, and move followers toward the accomplishment of goals. The book emanates from the two-day-long 21st Kravis-de Roulet leadership conference, which brought together top scholars working in this area. The intent of the conference and this edited volume is to increase understanding of the interpersonal and influence skills, or "soft skills," of the leader, to highlight state-of-the-art research on the topic, and to provide clear, research-based guidelines for the development of leader skills.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the book clearly outlines the kinds of programmatic steps that are used in trying to develop leaders to be more transformational, including techniques such as 360-degree feedback, personal development plans, working on vision plans and articulation of visions, etc."
The Member Connector - International Leadership Assoc.

"A new or revised book by on the world's most eminent researchers on leadership is usually the cause for celebration, and this work by Bernard Bass (writing with Ronald E. Riggio) is no exception....this is a must-read book for researchers and advanced students in leadership in general and transformational leadership in particular....a valuable contribution for any serious student on this topic."
PsycCRITIQUES

"Bernie Bass' legacy is an international tidal wave of researchers and scholars exploring transformational leadership. The study of leadership has many mothers but it was Bernie Bass who became its driving force. We are delighted to have this new edition of Transformational Leadership and to find the markedly thoughtful influence of leadership scholar and social psychologist Ron Riggio. It brings in substantial new findings, consolidates and conceptualizes previous work, and brings the work of leadership to life with real leaders in real-life situations."
James MacGregor Burns and Georgia Sorenson
University of Maryland
