    Leadership Ethics

    Publisher: SAGE Publications Ltd (2013)

    Research into the topic of leadership ethics has grown and evolved gradually over the past few decades. This timely set arrives at an important moment in the subject's history. In a relatively new field, such a collection offers scholars more than articles on a topic; it also serves to outline the parameters of the field. Carefully structured over three volumes, the material runs through an understanding of the key philosophic and practical questions in leadership ethics along with a wide range of literature - from disciplines including philosophy, business and political science, to name a few- that speaks to these questions.

    Volume One: Theoretical Aspects of Leadership Ethics

    Volume Two: Behavioral and Psychological Aspects of Leadership Ethics

    Volume Three: Leadership Ethics, Contexts and Narratives

    In recent years, organizations – both for profit and non-profit organizations – have become aware of the importance of creativity and innovation to organizational success and survival. Both research and practical experience is demonstrating that effective leadership is one of, if not the most important, influences on these intangible assets. This three-volume set brings together the key literature exploring the impact of leadership on creativity and innovation and the mechanisms by which leaders influence creativity and innovation in organizations, including coverage of research topics such as leader cognition, leader influences on motivation, leader interactions with project teams, climate creation, and leader resource acquisition.

    Emerging Approaches to Leadership

    Edited by:

    Content Type: major works

    Publisher: SAGE Publications Ltd (2014)

    For many years, traditional approaches to the study of leadership have reflected three common assumptions: First, leadership is a property of the leaders; second, there is a clear distinction between leaders and followers; and third, leadership is associated with a position in some traditional or formal hierarchy. It is only in the last decade or so that new approaches have started to emerge with the purpose of replacing the dominant leader-centered approach to studying, developing and practicing leadership. In addition, there is a growing recognition in the field of leadership studies that the context of leadership has changed and today's leaders face new challenges that necessitate changes in the ways leadership is performed. This four-volume major work for the first time brings together the key literature charting these developments - including theoretical perspectives, studies and research methods which represent new approaches - as well as providing an overview of the emerging, promising trends in the field of leadership studies.

    Volume 1: Collective Leadership

    Volume 2: Leadership in Emerging Contexts: Complexity, Virtuality, and Intergroup Situations

    Volume 3: Leadership in Social Networks

    Volume 4: Other Emerging Issues: The Role of Followers in the Leadership Process, the Relational Social Constructionist Approach, and the Neuroscience Approach to Leadership

    Developing Leadership: ¿ Questions Business Schools Don't Ask ?

    Edited by: &

    Content Type: books

    Publisher: SAGE Publications Ltd (2015)

    What kind of a leader do you want to become?

    The role of business schools in developing future managers and leaders has long been scrutinised and critiqued. This has been exacerbated by the recent financial crisis and many books have been written that condemn business schools for producing leaders who graduate without the ability to respond to the changing world around them, innovate, or act in a responsible way.

    By way of remedy this provocative book takes the critique and debate further, proposing a number of ethical and spiritual resources including Heiggarian philosophy, classical Greek philosophy, and the Maori notion of wairua. It explores existing teaching practices and suggests ways that business schools can: Encourage a greater understanding of different world views; Introduce different perspectives such as the arts, philosophy and spirituality; Encourage the practice of responsible and ethical leadership; Nurture innovation and creativity.

    Developing Leadership is accompanied by filmed seminars exploring the central debates, and interviews with the expert team of contributors. The conversation continues at http://www.ethicalleadership.org.uk

    ‘A rare thing, this book gives more than the label promises. The title is about “questions”, yet each chapter gives us answers to why important issues are not addressed in business schools – and what to do about it. This is a manifesto for reform, and the next big question is what will you, reader, do about it?’ - Professor Jonathan Gosling, Director, Centre for Leadership Studies, University of Exeter, UK, and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD, France

    Although leadership theories have evolved to reflect changing social contexts, they remain silent on issues of equity, diversity, and social justice. Diversity and Leadership offers a new paradigm for examining leadership by bringing together two domains-research on leadership and research on diversity-to challenge existing notions of leadership and move toward a diverse and global view of society and its institutions. This compelling book delivers an approach to leadership that is inclusive, promotes access for diverse leaders, and addresses barriers that narrowly confine our perceptions and expectations of leaders. Redefining leadership as global and diverse, the authors impart new understanding of who our leaders are, the process of communication, exchange between leaders and their members, criteria for selecting, training, and evaluating leaders in the 21st century, and the organizational and societal contexts in which leadership is exercised.

    The Power of Invisible Leadership: How a Compelling Common Purpose Inspires Exceptional Leadership

    A powerful force draws people to leadership in countless businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, and social movements–we call it invisible leadership. Invisible leadership embodies situations in which dedication to a compelling and deeply held common purpose is the motivating force for leadership. Common purpose is more than a mission statement. It is a profound sense of common destiny, a life course or calling, aligned with a mission that resonates profoundly with our values and our sense of ourselves and others.

    This readable, research-based book shows readers how invisible leadership exists in the space between leaders and followers, artists and subjects, and purposes and people. Rather than reinforcing the idea that leadership is embodied in celebrity leaders or in gifted and charismatic individuals, the well known and highly admired authors of this insightful new book identify “charisma of purpose” as the motivating force for invisible leadership. A brief discussion of how invisible leadership impacts businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, and social movements guides the reader toward an understanding of the antecedents and possibilities of this way of thinking.

    Currently published leadership textbooks do not adequately cover important leadership theories that have emerged in the last ten years such as “Emotions and Leadership”, “Authentic Leadership and Positivie Organizational Scholarship”, “Identity Theory”, “Sense-Making and Knowledge Management”, and Persuasion and Influence Tactics”. As a result followers of these models are forced to use course-packs and single-theory books. This textbook will meet the needs of this market by covering their favorite theories along with other traditional leadership theories. The textbook will be written in the conversational style preferred by today's students. It will be concise enough to be used in a case or course-pack oriented course, or in a module graduate program.
