Ideal for instructors who take a practical, skill-building approach to teaching leadership, this text balances theory with real-world applications. DuBrin, a highly respected author and consultant, incorporates current research on leadership and real-world business events from academic journals and popular periodicals. Leadership profiles focus on successful men and women to whom students can easily relate, such as lower-level, small business, and not-for-profit leaders. In the Fifth Edition, skill-building activities such as leadership self-assessment quizzes, role-play exercises, and discussion questions have been retained. Key updates include new opening vignettes and end-of-chapter cases; one additional Skill-Building Exercise per chapter; and an enhanced Online Study Center (student web site) with new Knowledge Bank sections, featuring research and theory not covered in the text.
