Practice and Perspectives

Second Edition

Kevin Roe

  • With a lively and accessible writing style, a thorough exploration of the main leadership theories, and a wealth of thought-provoking case studies, this is the ideal textbook for students with limited first-hand experience of leadership.
  • Two clear parts logically guide the reader through the key theoretical models of leadership, as well as the issues and themes that surround the subject.
  • Diverse case studies showcase alternative perspectives on leadership, and break down the common perception that leadership is only for the 'great and good', as well as prompting students to consider how leadership theories relate to real-life examples.
  • A wealth of carefully designed learning features, including assignment questions, case study questions, and definition boxes develop students' knowledge and understanding of key topics by supporting, checking, and reinforcing their learning throughout every chapter.
  • Pause for thought boxes, self-test questionnaires, and assignment questions encourage students to critically reflect on the theories and practices they've learned about and how such concepts and issues might apply in their own approach to leadership practice.
