Richard L. Daft provides an excellent foundation of leadership theories as well as its application in today's busy business world in The Leadership Experience (Dryden Press Series in Management) - ISBN 9781439042113. This textbook is ideal for both management and non-management students as it develops critical thinking and leadership skills. The book engages students into examining topics such as open innovation and emotional intelligence. With its balance on theory, application, and scholarly research, it is often described as one of the best in the market. The author starts off with an introduction to leadership, asking what it means to be a leader. Research perspectives on leadership, the personal side of leadership, the leader as a relationship builder, and the leader as a social architect are discussed. Topics covered in the book include traits, behaviors, and relationships, contingency approaches to leadership, the leader as an individual, leadership mind and heart, courage and moral leadership, and followership. Students can identify with leadership communication, leading teams, developing leadership diversity, and leadership power and influence. The last part of the text is devoted to creating vision and strategic direction, shaping culture and values, and leading change. Richard L. Daft is a professor who specializes in leadership and organization theory and works at Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management. He has already written other books and journals regarding leadership. The Leadership Experience (Dryden Press Series in Management) is even more effective for student consumption, thanks to the new online supplement. Instructors have access to exclusive tools and PowerPoint slides. This new edition successfully integrates current issues such as political turmoil, ethical scandals, and the Wall Street meltdown.
