Bringing together leading international scholars across disciplines for the dual purpose of chronicling the current state of leadership education and establishing a solid foundation upon which to grow the field, the text explores approaches to teaching leadership, the conceptual, theoretical and disciplinary roots upon which these approaches are based and what are the inherent strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The Handbook will be an invaluable resource to individuals, centers, institutes, and libraries to support the growing demand for courses in leadership and ensure that such courses and instruction are developed with multiple considerations and best practices in mind.
