Leadership remains one of the most sought-after qualities in contemporary society, yet after centuries of research, education and debate it remains just as elusive as ever.
Leadership Paradoxes: Rethinking Leadership for an Uncertain World argues that a key to understanding and enhancing leadership education, theory and practice lies in the recognition of its paradoxical tendencies.
“Elegantly written throughout, and deeply rooted in both research and practice, each chapter offers novel variations on the central theme of paradox. This is a thought provoking and refreshing antidote to numerous damaging myths about leadership”
