Leadership – we have all been part of it in some way. Many have practised it, others have researched and written about it, all of us have seen it in action. There is a continuing cry that we need more and better leadership, be it in business, schools, churches, the community or politics. But what is this thing called leadership? This book helps answer that question by letting the voices of those acknowledged as leaders across the community do their own talking. For those who like a little theory, but not too much, this book includes a brief discussion of some of the leadership theories that have attracted interest over the years. What is this thing called leadership? will be of interest to those currently holding leadership positions in their organisations, those aspiring to such positions, as well as to those studying leadership, such as MBA students.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
