Part 1: Contextualising Leadership examines the internal and external forces influencing leadership, addressing issues such as ethics, power, culture and innovation.
Part 2: Leadership Theories reviews and analyses traditional and contemporary theories of leadership.
Part 3: Managing People and Leadership builds on the idea of leadership as a human process and considers how complementary aspects of HRM can inform leadership practice and its outcomes on employees and organizational performance.
Part 4: Contemporary Leadership considers topical issues including the shift of leadership studies towards followership, gender and leadership and pro-environmental leadership.
Bringing complex theories and concepts to life through a range of case studies and examples, the book is further supported by a series of fascinating expert video conversations with those in leadership roles. From small social businesses to major multi-nationals, from the NHS to the frontline military teams, the videos offer a unique insight into the diverse reality of leadership in practice today.

Senior students everywhere will benefit from Bratton and his impressive team of contributors’ crafting of an excellent work. Navigable, absorbing and eminently appropriate for students and practitioners alike, I expect this book will influence both current and shadow organizational leadership, as we steer organizations into a more nuanced and aware era of both for-profit and non-profit enterprise. -- Doug Engelbrecht
At a time when the need for good leadership across the world has never been greater, Bratton and colleagues provide a masterful overview of leadership theory and practice […] Informed by a dazzling array of literature across many social science/management disciplines, this ‘multimedia’ text will be invaluable to students of organizational behaviour, organization studies, HRM, management and beyond.
