Leadership brings together the core themes and debates within the field and provides a critical analysis of leadership. Part 1 presents the basic frameworks and explores what we mean by leadership, how it compares to management, and why we study it. Part 2 presents essentialist approaches in chapters on early approaches to understanding leadership, transformational and charismatic leadership, leading teams and leading change, and authentic leadership. Part 3 presents relational approaches which include an understanding of leadership in which everyone is a leader, leadership as a social construction, leadership-as-practice, responsible leadership, and followership. The final part looks at how to develop as a leader and craft leadership practice and identity.
