Theory and Practice
- Peter G. Northouse - Western Michigan University, USA
The market-leading Leadership: Theory and Practice by Peter G. Northouse presents an academically robust account of the major theories and models of leadership with a focus on how theory can inform practice. Northouse uses a consistent structure for each chapter that allows readers to easily compare and contrast different theories. Case studies and questionnaires provide students with practical examples and opportunities to deepen their understanding of their own leadership style. The fully updated Ninth Edition features a new chapter on inclusive leadership, 17 new real-world cases that profile leaders from across the globe, a new discussion on leadership and morality, and examples of timely issues such as leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Excellent text for survey leadership course.
This is a great book to use for our Leadership 355
Northouse provides a thorough analysis and synthesis of contemporary and current leadership theories and models that can transcend multidisciplined programmes within the Business and Management/Leadership and Management suite of modules. An excellent text for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.
Used previous edition and it worked well.
Historically, this is the best text I have found for teaching the foundations of leadership. The breakdown, charts, and surveys are all great.
Wish there was a little move detail in the Followership section with more depth from the leader's responsibility to followers and more "how to" information for being a great follower that can help and org or goal more successful. Note that the provided information is a good foundation.
The content was what we needed.
Chose another text this time (temporary). But will consider this text for the coming semesters.
Most comprehensive and practical publication of leadership behaviors, theories, and approaches. Followed a natural progression of studied leader practices. Highly praised by students.
Utilised by students on a level 6 leadership and professional development programme to support their academic report- they benefitted massively from the insights provided
This book presents leadership theories and approaches in a systematic, clear, practical and up-to-date fashion. It is a great place to start to learn how to navigate the academic conversation on that matter.
