Leadership A New Synthesis by James Hunt

Complementing other books published in the field of strategic management, Leadership emphasizes the differences in leadership requirements at multiple levels in an organization - a difference that is not just one of degree but also one of quantity. Hunt draws on stratified systems theory for the book's conceptual framework. He discusses various research strategies with a particular emphasis on time and explores practical leader training and development.
