ABOUT THIS BOOK
This book analyzed the various leadership strategies. It is grouped in three key components, namely: breadth, depth and the application components. The breadth component explored and analyzed the theories of leadership from various theorists, such as: Fiedler (1967), Sanford (1949), Reuters (1967) and Stogdill (1957), (1960). The depth component provided a comprehensive analysis of current literature and research studies on leadership. Over fifty-five current literature and research studies on leadership were reviewed, analyzed, compared and contrasted. As the name may suggest, in the application component the concepts of leadership identified in both the breadth and depth components were applied to solve a known public problem. The suicide epidemic among the Inuit of Nunavut was used to demonstrate how the learning from the theories, literature and research studies on leadership could be used to solve a public problem. The author applied the leadership tenets identified in the various leadership strategies, namely: charismatic, transformational, situational, and transactional leadership approaches for the exposition. The book emphasized on the importance of leadership and how leadership creates social change. This is a good book for managers, supervisors, leaders from various backgrounds, research scholars, teachers and anyone who wants to add values to create social change. It is a strategic book for decision makers.
