Critically analyse the concepts of leadership and management and their application in an organisational, social, environmental and multicultural context with this book.
How do you measure managers and leaders? How do you assess their development needs? Leadership and Management Development covers these and other key topics that form the requirements for the CIPD Level 7 Advanced module of the same name. Retitled and revised to focus on leadership as well as management, the book includes multiple perspectives from those who have either experienced or provided leadership and management development alongside analysis and critique to help paint a full picture of the subject. Students will learn to analyse the concepts of leadership and management, identify leadership and management development needs and formulate and implement strategies and interventions.
This fully updated 5th edition of Leadership and Management Development features increased coverage of diversity, ecology, ethics and SMEs. At least two case studies per chapter support academic and critical context, and the book takes a more international perspective by considering global leaders and presenting international examples. It is ideal for students studying leadership and management development as part of a CIPD qualification or as part of a general business or HR degree. Online supporting resources include an instructor's manual and lecture slides.
A highly readable and challenging text, the new edition contains many significant and useful additions.
