Redmond Humphrey
Upper Iowa University

The organization of the chapters is logical and follows the most common themes of classical leadership courses offered in business schools across the globe. Each of these themes is illustrated with one or more cases and a paper making it easy for students to understand what to look for in each of the cases… The cases are perhaps ideal for the busy schedule of the average business school student as they are not too lengthy… The cases have a fair mix of geographical and sectoral contexts. A few cases are in the context of government and non-profit sectors and this is especially welcome to illustrate key qualities of leadership under different conditions…The book is a valuable resource for instructors who are in search of a well-structured and systematic collection of cases to help students grasp basic leadership concepts effectively… The book will provide students with a fairly diverse set of scenarios to view the theories in practical lights and to familiarize themselves with the complexities of real-world situations.
