Unfortunately, leadership does not have a one-size-fits-all definition. We all have our own ideas as to what makes a good leader and the types of challenges that will be faced. The author bridges a gap by presenting how modern leadership happens while simultaneously combining a description of leadership and its practical application in today's environments. In this book, Nicholas Harkiolakis integrates the various theoretical perspectives into a unified model that can be understood by both the academic and the practitioner (existing and future leaders). This understanding is necessary to effectively treat and apply leadership to the challenging settings of today's operational environments: virtual, distributed, multicultural and so on. Some of the key topics covered are: leadership through the ages characteristics of leadership modern perspectives an integrated leadership framework the application of leadership the twenty-first-century leadership practices.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Although he provides ample illustrations of leadership in history, what makes this book really important is the extension of leadership analysis to multigenerational, multi-locational, even multi-national organizations. Harkiolakis projects the leader as one who can create and sustain a probable future that can survive in the face of unintended consequences and unforeseeable circumstances.' - Dr. Thomas Rocco, retired president Leadership Institute of Seattle and founding provost Hellenic American University.

'There are a lot of books about leadership and I've read quite a few. Nicholas' book stands apart from them. It's neither the familiar 'How To' which far too often suggests you imitate the author nor an academic tome that considers the intense and self-challenging aspects of leadership as just another topic for dissection. Rather he has written a well-judged, thoughtful, review and analysis of the nature of leadership, the experience of leading and the challenges and contradictions therein. It's a handbook about what leadership has been, what it is today and what it can be in the future. Written in a clear and engaging style, Nicholas provides an impressive tour-de-force of the essence of leadership for an inquisitive and reflective audience.' - Simon Jones, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Cranfield University.
