Leadership is a “process,” not a person. In this text book, author Art Padilla asserts that the dynamics of leadership involve leaders, followers and their environments—the organizational contexts within which leading and following take place. This triangle approach illustrates a more holistic and comprehensive view of leadership by focusing on all three dynamics. While infused with the most contemporary research and latest theories, material comes to life through chapter inserts and mini cases featuring themes that leaders and followers regularly encounter, such as: mentoring and developing talent, ethics, integrity and credibility, teams, and toxic leadership. Using the most current examples to demonstrate concepts, the author encourages students to perceive instances of leadership, and the leaders, followers and environments that make them relevant.
