Leadership

December 2024 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Authenticity is key for successful leaders—they remain true to themselves, drawing strength from their diverse constellation of experiences, perspectives, and heritages. Leadership invites you to challenge traditional norms about leader identity and develop your own positive leadership behaviors. 

This book’s transformational approach empowers you to critically examine your beliefs, values, and experiences, fostering a reflective self-knowledge base, an appreciation for multiple perspectives, and a sense of personal agency. It offers a clear, concise overview of leadership, emphasizing that there isn’t a single best way to lead; true leadership emerges from within. 

Your learning is supported by over 30 in-text activities and self-assessment quizzes designed to reframe your past experiences as leadership interventions and draw out valuable self-knowledge. This book is ideal for both undergraduate and postgraduate Leadership students. 

Andrei A. Lux is a Lecturer in Leadership at the School of Business and Law, Edith Cowan University.
