Offering a straightforward introduction to the basic principles of leadership, Peter G. Northouse provides readers with practical strategies for becoming better leaders. An applied text by the author of the best-seller Leadership: Theory and Practice, this new text provides the much needed how-to component for students in leadership courses. Three interactive components in every chapter--self-assessment questionnaires, observational exercises, and reflection and action worksheets--get readers actively involved in applying leadership concepts to their own lives. Grounded in leadership theory, yet accessible and reader-friendly, this book covers a fundamental aspect of leadership in each chapter and illustrates its application in real leadership situations. A final chapter discusses the key topic of ethics in leadership.
