Clashes, Convergences and Coalescences
- New Horizons in Leadership Studies series
Edited by Donna Ladkin and Chellie Spiller
The majority of authentic leadership literature focuses on the individual leader. However, the authors in this volume expertly focus on the premise that leadership is a relational phenomenon and not something that can be distilled down to the actions of one leader, be they authentic or not.
