Leadership is central to determining the success or failure of an organization, and its high priority on the management agenda is reflected in the number of businesses covering this essential subject. Leadership MBA Masterclass offers an important and incisive contribution to the current debate. This book provides an analysis of leadership styles, qualities and behaviours. It draws on examples from the real world, studying successful role models (Baroness Thatcher, Sir John Harvey-Jones, Jack Welch), and outlining what can be learnt from their styles. Philip Sadler offers an in-depth guide to the important leadership issues covered in MBA courses, including: defining leadership; leadership and management; how to select and develop future leaders; cultural differences in leadership style; and what it takes to be a leader in the present day.

Although the book is primarily designed to meet the needs of students on management courses leading to an MBA degree or similar qualification, Leadership MBA Masterclass is also suitable for all who practise leadership, who would like to gain a better understanding of the process, and even draw inspiration from the ideas it contains. Authoritative and academic, yet practical, the MBA Masterclass series is designed to cover the latest developments in management thinking and practice.

How senior leaders can re-connect to the emerging leaders hidden in their organizations A sea change has taken place throughout the culture of leadership; today’s emerging leaders are "opting out" of the same positions their predecessors coveted in years past. But many senior managers trained in traditional leadership still hang onto outdated approaches of command and control despite how much they’ve heard about "empowerment" and inclusion. At the core of this book is the fictional suspense story of Brookreme Corporation, whose leaders are challenged to chart a course to a global future, navigating relational land mines along the way. With both story telling and hard research, Leadership Divided reconnects generations and instructs both senior and emerging leaders on how the relationships of the future will be the path to revolutionary performance. Ron A. Carucci (Seattle, WA) is a founding partner with Passages Consulting, LLC, where he works with CEOs and senior executives in pursuit of profound organizational change and executive leadership capability. He is Graduate Professor of Leadership at Mars Hill Graduate School in Seattle. He is also faculty member at Fordham University, serving as Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior, and has served as an adjunct at the Center for Creative Leadership. His clients have included Edward Jones Investments, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Amgen, McDonald’s, PepsiCo, Gates Corporation, Accenture, and many others.

"Philip Selznick has profoundly affected how all serious students of organizations think about their subject. Leadership in Administration is, perhaps, his masterpiece: a lucid, rigorous, yet humane analysis of the essential task of leadership that brilliantly reaffirms the organic, value-infused character of a successful enterprise, whether private or public. The central concepts of the book--'mission,' 'distinctive competence'--have become so much a part of our vocabulary that we sometimes forget they had to be invented and that Selznick invented them. His reminder that the true exercise of leadership transcends a concern with mere efficiency is even more appropriate in today's era of quasi-scientific thought about organizations than it was when, presciently, he first set it forth in 1957."--James Q. Wilson, Harvard University "The reappearance of Leadership in Administration will be most welcome to students of organizations because it provides the most lucid and complete statement available of Selznick's special view of organizations. This view has given rise to the institutionalist school of organizational analysis, one of the liveliest and more irrelevant alternatives to mainstream rationalist formulations."--W. Richard Scott, Stanford University "Leadership in Administration has become a classic in the art of executive leadership. In fact, it is stimulating more managerial thought and organizational research today than ever before."--Robert H. Miles, Harvard Business School

Regarded as one of the most influential management books of all time, this fourth and completely updated edition of Edgar Schein's Organizational Culture and Leadership focuses on today's complex business realities and draws on a wide range of contemporary research to demonstrate the crucial role of leaders in applying the principles of culture to achieve their organizational goals. Edgar Schein explores how leadership and culture are fundamentally intertwined, and reveals key findings about leadership and culture including: Leaders are entrepreneurs and the main architects of culture Once cultures are formed they influence what kind of leadership is possible If elements of the culture become dysfunctional, it is the leader's responsibility to do something to speed up culture change. In addition, the book contains new information that reflects culture at different levels of analysis from national and ethnic macroculture to team-based microculture. Praise for Prior Editions of Organizational Culture and Leadership "Worth reading again and again and again."—Booklist "An organizational development pioneer uses an anthropological approach to address a leader's role in shaping group and organizational dynamics."—Knowledge Management "[Schein] is, to use an overworked word, a guru, the recognized expert in the field."—Inside Business

The challenges for police leaders and managers worldwide are surprisingly consistent. This volume presents fresh and unusual perspectives from Australia on the new contexts and challenges of contemporary police leadership and management. It provides practitioners, researchers and students with a breadth and depth of background that enables them to understand the often politically complex environment of crime and disorder management faced by those in leadership roles. The contributors to the volume recognise that modern operational policing must embrace partnership models in order to manage crime and disorder, and that, while command and control models are still an essential of many aspects of policing, managing police officers and staff increasingly depends on their professional development and encouraging enthusiasm and innovation. The authors also write against a background of intense political, media and community scrutiny of police work. The wide range of topics explores what is changing, what is known about the impact of these changes and what leaders and managers now need to be able to do or anticipate as a consequence.
