Leadership is more than a being a leader.This textbook presents a holistic and readable overview of leadership. The dynamics of leadership involve leaders, followers and their environments -- the organizational contexts within which leading and following take place. This triangle approach illustrates a more comprehensive view of leadership by focusing on all three dynamics.Students benefit from taking the evidence-based inventories to learn more about their leadership preferences. Six in-depth case studies add to the textbook and invite students to explore the application of leadership theory to practice. Each chapter ends with key terms, comprehension questions, and class activities.Chapters in this book draw on contemporary research and mini-cases to engage students in learning about themes of leadership focused on topics such as: ethics, effective communication, teams, mentoring, and toxic leadership.This book features integration of the case studies in the chapters along with updated literature and mini-cases. Chapter summaries, test banks, sample syllabi, and slide decks, designed by the authors, are a new addition for instructors.
