This is a great book to use for our Leadership 355
Northouse provides a thorough analysis and synthesis of contemporary and current leadership theories and models that can transcend multidisciplined programmes within the Business and Management/Leadership and Management suite of modules. An excellent text for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.
Used previous edition and it worked well.
Historically, this is the best text I have found for teaching the foundations of leadership. The breakdown, charts, and surveys are all great.
Wish there was a little move detail in the Followership section with more depth from the leader's responsibility to followers and more "how to" information for being a great follower that can help and org or goal more successful. Note that the provided information is a good foundation.
The content was what we needed.
Chose another text this time (temporary). But will consider this text for the coming semesters.
Most comprehensive and practical publication of leadership behaviors, theories, and approaches. Followed a natural progression of studied leader practices. Highly praised by students.
Utilised by students on a level 6 leadership and professional development programme to support their academic report- they benefitted massively from the insights provided
This book presents leadership theories and approaches in a systematic, clear, practical and up-to-date fashion. It is a great place to start to learn how to navigate the academic conversation on that matter.
Excellent text! Cases are relevant. Addition of inclusive leadership is on target.
I am no longer teaching this course. It was given to a new assistant professor.
Used Previous Edition, good material
It is an excellent book, well structured and sustained, a lot of references.
The content is very clear and updated.
It could have more real life examples and cases.
This book is a classic and your support materials are excellent.
I love everything about this book. We use it every year in our Intro to Ed Leadership course with our new doctoral students. The students always comment that they enjoy reading the book and feel that the information is relevant to their work as practitioners. The updated version with new case studies, assessments, and online options is excellent.
This remains the required text for the Models of Leadership course in our Master's program. It covers almost all of the required objectives in a comprehensive manner and is well supported by the case studies that accompany it.
Excellent book. Concise but complete!
