Books Info:

Leadership in the Australian Context free pdf Little is known of how leadership actually happens in the Australian context. Most of the theory and case study material in leadership is drawn from the US. And, even within the US literature, leadership examples are most frequently drawn from the business arena and focus largely on anglo-celtic men. This is not a true reflection of the diversity of Australian society nor of leaders in Australia.'Leadership in the Australian Context: Case Studies' in Leadership provides both a summary of leadership theory and a theoretical framework for understanding the practice of leadership. It then offers in-depth case studies of 11 Australian leaders drawn from across business, politics, the public and not-for-profit sectors as well as across age groups and gender. From these case studies is drawn a synopsis of what these leaders have in common and what the key factors are to successful leadership in the Australian context.
