On Effective Leadership: Across Domains, Cultures, and Eras (Jepson Studies in Leadership)

by

On Effective Leadership: Across Domains, Cultures, and Eras (Jepson Studies in Leadership) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why are some leaders effective, many ineffective, and only a very few exceptional? Chandler and Chandler argue that four common elements drive leadership effectiveness across all domains, cultures, and eras. Three of them are skills, and the fourth is the degree of a leader's selflessness. To illustrate the power of these elements, On Effective Leadership examines sixteen case studies of leaders in a range of fields, cultures, and historical settings. It concludes with the implications for followers, leaders, and leadership development.
