Leader book worth a look

Paisley Daily Express - - Ladies Get In The Swing For Charity -

Lead­er­ship in the mod­ern world is the sub­ject of a new book by a Pais­ley aca­demic.

Chris­tian Har­ri­son’s Lead­er­ship The­ory and Re­search: A Crit­i­cal Ap­proach to New and Ex­ist­ing Paradigms re­veals that the sub­ject re­search has shown that it is one of the least un­der­stood phe­nom­ena on earth.

This book’s aim is to pro­vide a crit­i­cal in­sight into lead­er­ship re­search.

Emerg­ing mod­els and the­o­ries of new ap­proaches to lead­er­ship are iden­ti­fied and ad­dressed in the book.

Mr Har­ri­son, of the Uni­ver­sity of the West of Scot­land’s School of Business and En­ter­prise, said:“I am de­lighted by the pos­i­tive re­sponse I have al­ready re­ceived for this pub­li­ca­tion.

“In the book I es­tab­lish that lead­er­ship is an un­der-de­vel­oped phe­nom­e­non, for which no uni­fied the­ory cur­rently ex­ists. Pre­vi­ous lead­er­ship books have tra­di­tion­ally fo­cused nar­rowly on a lim­ited set of el­e­ments by high­light­ing the leader while over­look­ing rel­e­vant el­e­ments of lead­er­ship.

“This book takes a holis­tic view of the phe­nom­e­non.”
