Product description


"Leadership: Theory and Practice and its accompanying resources are exceptional. The text is an essential resource for faculty and for students at the undergrad, graduate, executive education, and doctoral levels. There's nothing out there that even come close in terms of quality and comprehensiveness. Don't teach leadership at any level without it."


--James D. Ludema

"Northouse offers comprehensive coverage of leadership that spans decades of classic and contemporary approaches. He effectively translates the evidence-base in a way that students can put into practice. I have always been impressed with the balance in his presentation of leadership theories, offering a section on strengths and criticisms in each chapter. If you are looking for a book that encourages critical thinking about leadership, this is the one."

--Terri A. Scandura

"A comprehensive guide to the study of leadership." --Sandra Arumugam-Osburn

"I recommend this as the leadership book to read/assign over all others. I tell students this is the most important book in our undergraduate Organizational Leadership major. If I could only buy and keep one book in the program, it would be Leadership: Theory & Practice."--Ric Rohm

"It is an understandable and concise book highlighting the traits, characteristics, and features of a leader." --Abimbola Farinde

"It's a well-written, research-based, comprehensive resource that any scholar of leadership, organizational developer, and current or aspiring leader should be familiar with." --Benjamin Kutsyuruba

"Northouse's Leadership: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand overview of the field of leadership. It summarizes key concepts and knowledge and explains how we got to where we are today in our understanding of leadership. It is a student-centered approach to studying leadership by explaining key strengths and criticisms of each theory and topic as well as including assessments students can use to better understand their own traits/skills/behaviors and potential as leaders." --Sandi Zeljko

"The book is a great primer for an overview of basic leadership theories. It is a text that puts complex leadership theories into digestible forms for those unfamiliar with the language. The book provides a great historical context for the study of leadership, serving to inform the work of leadership moving forward."--Heather J. Mashburn

"This book is a good starting place for those who are interested in learning about the broad range of leadership theories and a good follow-up resource for those wanting to know more in-depth information and also how to apply theories to real life situations through the case studies." --Patricia Dillon Sobczak

"This book presents strong learning material on leadership approaches, traits, and theories, and presents the material in a very succinct learning text." --Comfort Okapala --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
