Leadership Behavior underscores the importance of the leader to an organization. Although the material presented in the book should be of value to those interested in leadership and organizational behavior in general, it should be of considerable value to those in the field. The material is more practical than theoretical, and covers multiple perspectives of leadership: women as leaders, group think and leadership, Japanese leadership, leadership and the appropriate use of power, power vs. authority, leadership and outsourcing, leadership and quality, the application of U.S. leadership techniques to Russian organizations, qualities of top leadership, and leadership and employee empowerment. The book is meant to be of pragmatic and intellectual interest to anyone concerned with the challenging work of the leader.
