Can we identify the qualities that make a good leader? Are the characteristics that make a leader unchanging throughout time? Are leadership styles influenced by a person's background or sex? In short, are leaders born or bred? From basic theory to development and implementation, this work presents current thinking about the phenomena of leadership with nearly 100 articles from leading figures and writers. The contributors include Rosabeth Moss Kanter, John Harvey Jones, Tom Peters, Peter Drucker and Charles Handy.
