What People are Saying About This
In The Nature of Leadership, Antonakis, Cianciolo, and Sternberg provide a thorough review of the state of leadership research. I was impressed with the reviews of research methods, leadership assessment, the influence of context, and ethics. It is a must read for those who teach leadership.
Professor of Organizational Behavior, International Institute for Management Development
The Nature of Leadership is a masterful state-of-the-art-and-science compendium written to appeal to researchers, students, and practitioners of leadership. This book covers the leadership landscape with both breadth and depth of knowledge and practice possible only from real experts and their protégés. It will be off my bookshelf often, as I plan to use it regularly.
