'An impressive collection of sixteen stimulating articles on a wide variety of issues on the whole subject of leadership... One of the best collections of articles available on this critically important subject.' -Long Range PlanningAre leaders born or made? Do they have particular traits or are we all potential leaders? Keith Grint examines the notion of leadership as an array of 'arts' in a series of rich essay portraits of some of the most famous, and infamous, leaders (for example Florence Nightingale, Richard Branson, Henry Ford, Horatio Nelson, Adolf Hitler, and Martin Luther King). With scenarios drawn from across the spectrum to include business, politics, society, and the military, this book will be of interest to anyone curious about the nature and function of leadership.
