Description

If leadership is being exercised with a right and effective way in companies, organizations, teams, families and societies, it will play a critical role in progress, social cohesion and prosperity. In Greece however, leadership as concept and practice remains confused, even misunderstood, since leaders are being often and widely identified with those who hold power: chief officers, rulers, demagogues, populists and charlatans.

This book tries to give simple and comprehensible answers to main questions like what is leadership and who is a leader, what is the purpose of their existence, what factors form the effective performance of a leader, as well as what traits, values, knowledge and abilities, efficient exercise of leadership for the greater good entails, in short and long term.

This book also offers a scientific insight on whether leaders are being born or grow into and how the develop.

A necessary piece of knowledge even for readers that do not exercise leadership, as it will help them with their choices and behavior which may affect personal advantage as well as benefit for the public.

“Short Introductions” series is about brief reference books written by experts, providing accurate and in-depth knowledge on a wide variety of subjects.
