Description : Leadership in today's organizations is a tough business. Organizational leaders face a number of challenges as their jobs, and the world around them, become increasingly complex. Trends, such as organizational "delayering," rapid technological advances, and increased employee empowerment require that leaders adapt their techniques and styles of leadership to meet these new challenges. Consequently, there has been an explosion of interest in leadership in recent years as researchers and management educators struggle to understand the process of leadership development, how it operates, and what characteristics make effective leaders. Born of these questions, the 11th Annual Kravis-de Roulet Leadership Conference at Claremont McKenna College brought together an impressive slate of scholars whose theories, research, and cutting-edge techniques are now gathered together in this impressive volume. Each chapter asks and answers questions about the current state of the field while providing future direction for research to help bridge the gap between leadership researchers and leadership development practitioners. Notable topics include chapters on "e-leadership" and leadership within the "virtual" organization, exploring 360-degree feedback, the importance of "social capital," and a comprehensive analysis of the well-researched theory of Leader Member Exchange.

Description : `This is the first really thought-provoking book that I have read on management development. It is a book primarily addressed to students, but in this field, we are all students. It merits a wide readership both among practising managers as well as among those responsible for developing them' - Max Boisot, ESADE `Mabey and Finch-Lees inject a breath of fresh air into the management development field by expanding upon its heretofore functionalist base. They offer an informative critique of mainstream views, featuring alternative discourses to examine such hard questions as why management development hasn't quite delivered on management's considerable investment in it. As a veritable tour de force in its absorbing integration and review of a large tract of literature, the book informs both management scholars and practitioners what might be expected from management development's intended but also unanticipated outcomes' - Joe Raelin, Northeastern University `In a well-written, accessible and yet sophisticated text, Mabey and Finch-Lees show themselves to be as familiar with the latest in management development practice as they are with the sometimes arcane theoretical literature that surrounds it. Its great strength is to recognize the plurality of discourses - some overlapping and complementary, others distinct and oppositional - about the subject. This book can be recommended as a unique resource for students and scholars of management development' - Chris Grey, University of Warwick This book represents a significant step forward in the theory of management and leadership development. It offers an international perspective in this era of globalisation and a new and questioning perspective on the common belief that leadership is something completely different to, and more important than, management. This book will be of great help to the serous theorist and researcher of management and leadership development. It is an invaluable point of reference for a broad range of theory and research in this area, which it summarises with admirable brevity and clarity' - John G Burgoyne, Lancaster University Management School and Henley Management College Management development is a potent and high-profile human resource activity, involving some of the organizations' key players and attracting huge hopes and investments from governments, organizations and individuals alike. Yet at several levels, the high expectations often remain unfulfilled. So why is this a subject and activity that continues to command such intense interest from scholars and practitioners alike? Chris Mabey and Tim Finch-Lees provide a fresh analysis of the concept and practice of management and leadership development (MLD). Grounded in research, the authors set out the current state of management and leadership development practices, before introducing readers to competing theories of MLD and offering them a more critical perspective. Throughout the book, ideas are illustrated by international case studies and vignettes that evoke the perceptions and interests of the whole range of stakeholders in the management development process. Management Development has been written for upper level undergraduate and masters level students pursuing courses in HRM, HRD, Leadership Development, Organizational Behaviour, Management, Organization Change, Personnel Management, and training and development modules.

Description : Conversational and accessible, this Second Edition of Bruce J. Avolio's groundbreaking book uses the full range leadership development model as an organizing framework and shows how it can be directly applied to improving leadership at the individual, team, and organizational levels. Filled with examples that show how the full range model comes to life in today's global world, Full Range Leadership Development, Second Edition, demonstrates how people, timing, resources, the context of interaction, and expected results in performance and motivation all contribute to effective leadership. Over the last decade, the full range model has become the most researched model in the leadership literature—and the most validated—and has been proven to be an accurate guide for developing exemplary leadership in diverse cultures, organizations, and leadership positions. The new edition shows how the process of leadership development is linked to validation and how the process of validation informs accelerated leadership development.

Description : Critically examine the intersections of learning and leadership. Using L. Dee Fink's taxonomy of signicant learning as a scaffold, experts in leadership education explain connections between emerging scholarship of teaching and learning and current trends in leadership, how to develop a more complex understanding of the levers of leadership learning, the environments that promote meaningful and measurable leadership learning, and the evidence behind such a practice. This volume examines: the role of leadership educator, the roles of authenticity (being true to one’s self) and criticality in education (interrogating beliefs and questioning power dynamics), select learning theories and their implications for leadership learning, and strategies for constructing leadership-related learning outcomes and assessing leadership learning. The Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Leadership explores leadership concepts and pedagogical topics of interest to high school and college leadership educators. Issues are grounded in scholarship and feature practical applications and best practices in youth and adult leadership education.

Description : This edited volume provides an overview of the current state and indigenous practices of leadership development (LD) in a select group of emerging market economies, including BRICS, Southeast and East Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Africa. While some authors focus exclusively on LD in the business sector, others discuss such topics as LD in higher education, the role of higher education institutions in leadership development for managers and executives, the role of religious institutions, and LD in the government and public sectors. Further, chapters on Brazil, Malaysia, Russia, Thailand, South Africa and South Korea include case studies of LD in individual companies. These cases and examples can be used in discussions of indigenous LD practices in courses on international and cross-cultural HRD, HRM, and leadership and organization development. Readers will benefit from this unique view of indigenous practices and perspectives from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds: HRD, HRM, and management and leadership studies. It is an essential read for academic audiences who recognize leadership development as a dominant trend both in developed and emerging economies.

Description : Most leadership development runs on rails: courses are organized with standard content usually delivered by companies set up expressly for that purpose. Most leadership programmes fail when judged on whether they achieve lasting impact and behaviour change because what is covered is often forgotten after the programme ends. Building Leadership Development Programmes is designed to show how leadership development should work. It challenges the widely accepted notion that leadership development cannot be measured and it exemplifies how to design programmes that are in line with organizational needs and deliver lasting and measurable impact. Building Leadership Development Programmes is structured around detailed case studies from around the world that offer unique insights into the process of building effective leadership development, looking at a range of approaches from almost zero cost options to high end investment that actually works. It helps readers think through what it is that they are actually trying to achieve, offering processes to work through to establish what is necessary for their organization and take a longer view than looking for quick fixes. It features case studies including Crotonville Leadership Centre who have worked with GE, McKinsey and the Red Cross, and interviews with world authorities on leadership and talent development. Detailed guidance will help identify the right measures to ensure impact, and to adopt the right methodologies, including looking at leadership coaching, mentoring, social learning and action learning, blowing apart the idea that expensive training courses are always required.

Description : This book argues that China’s businesses, and hence China’s future economic development, face a huge crisis in that there is a considerable "leadership gap" in China, with a shortage of competent business leaders, at a time when new leadership skills are required urgently, as China’s businesses evolve rapidly and engage ever more with the global economy. Moreover, the book argues, training is an undervalued and often marginalised activity in Chinese companies. The book outlines the nature of this problem, and goes on to demonstrate that there is a new breed of manager emerging in China, aware of the need to upgrade management skills, moving away from skills appropriate in traditional industrial firms, and emphasising more flexibility, positive engagement with workers, and competence in the market economy. The book includes an evaluation of different management approaches in China, reports on extensive original research, including interviews with practising managers, and sets out how self-development in widespread, deep and important.

Description : The purpose of this study was to investigate the extent to which MBA graduates perceived their MBA education experience to have contributed towards the development of global leadership competencies in their lives. The collected data related to what the respondents perceived to have observed vis-à-vis what they would have considered adequate for the development of global leadership competencies. Stratified sampling technique was used to select the respondents using disproportionate allocation of respondents within strata. Data relating to the key research objectives were analyzed using nonparametric tests specifically the Chi-square goodness of fit test and Wilcoxon signed ranks test. The study found a significant relationship between selected global leadership competencies and career success. Considering the amount of time allocated to the development of selected competencies, frequency of use of selected instructional methods, integration of theory with practice and, integration of MBA education with leadership values and ethics, the study concluded that the MBA education as offered in Kenyan business schools is not perceived by the respondents to be significantly enhancing the development of global leadership competencies among MBA graduates.

Description : To stay ahead of the competition, the public sector has to ensure an effective talent management strategy to attract, develop and retain talents. Effective talent management is about aligning the organisation’s approach to talent with the strategic aims and purpose of the organisation. This book adopts a comparative country analysis, which takes into account the institutional emphasis, organisational configuration and unique characteristics of the public sector. Against the backdrop of three major stages of administrative development, i.e., the colonial, postcolonial and modern periods, this book unpacks how the talent schemes have been shaped by the reforms, experiences, cross-country knowledge transfers and evolved over time responding to globalisation and digitalisation in Southeast Asia. This book will be of great interest to scholars and public managers working on public administration and civil service reforms in Asia towards developing a contextualised understanding of talent management and leadership development in the region.
