Good knowledge and guidelines in some cases are interesting! This is not for laymen. If you're studying for your PhD in leadership, maybe you should spend the time and read the pages.

Otherwise, don't waste your time. Read the summaries after each chapter and you'll get enough info. In sum, the studies and research on leadership are inconclusive so you don't really get concrete answers to what's a good leader, what training works, and so on. If you've read the gurus on leadership, you'll be familiar with the concepts.

I'll leave you with the authors de This is not for laymen. I'll leave you with the authors definition. Leadership is the process of influencing others to understand and agree about what needs to be done and how to do it, and the process of facilitating individual and collective efforts to accomplish shared objectives.

Oct 11, T. Although there are some excellent studies on many different leadership behaviors in Yukl's 7th edition of Leadership, the material is rather dry and drawn out. Truthfully, this was a chore to read due to the constant contradictions of previous statements of fact throughout the book: it rambles at times aimlessly among topics to the point that you are not sure exactly what is true, what is false, or what is inconclusive most of the studies examined, early models and latter models, all seem to en Although there are some excellent studies on many different leadership behaviors in Yukl's 7th edition of Leadership, the material is rather dry and drawn out.

Truthfully, this was a chore to read due to the constant contradictions of previous statements of fact throughout the book: it rambles at times aimlessly among topics to the point that you are not sure exactly what is true, what is false, or what is inconclusive most of the studies examined, early models and latter models, all seem to end up inconclusive in results, which makes it quite frustrating to stay interested in the material being presented.

I did find the section on group behavior and group leadership interesting and useful in my own profession, and will put it to work this next year when we have our annual weekend pow-wow. Aug 14, Gabrielle rated it it was amazing. There could not be a more thorough book on leadership theory. It is great that the book is updated often to reflect the changing field of leadership.

The language used in the text does assume knowledge of the field. It is appropriate for graduate level courses, and it could be used in undergraduate courses with the right supplemental readings. It includes access to a helpful online companion website with study tools. The book does focus on organizational leadership, and so it may not appeal to e There could not be a more thorough book on leadership theory.

The book does focus on organizational leadership, and so it may not appeal to everyone. View 1 comment. I read this book for a leadership course I'm taking, and I'm glad I read it. I would recommend, though, that if you're interested in this book the Global Edition is hard to read--the print is small in the paperback.

So, spend the money and buy the hardcover edition. I'm a cheapskate, and if you're tapped for funds, the paperback is there. The case studies at the back of the book are great to ponder, and you might surprise yourself with your answers to the questions about them. A little heavy on just reporting about studies made on managers and leaders - but still very interesting because instead of trying to just define leadership it acknowledges that leadership is a spectrum and underlines all the different parts of that spectrum.

I'm not done yet - but I doubt my review will change much. Dec 17, Becky rated it liked it. This is not a book for simple folk.

Even with my love for vocabulary I was looking up words to complete my required reading. It seems far too wordy for the information gathered from the text.

Nov 01, Betsy rated it it was ok Shelves: arts-administration , business-and-finance , textbook. This was way to academic. If I was getting a PhD in this stuff I might need to know about the in depth take on various research but when trying to learn this stuff I much prefer just to read about results. The writing and look of the book is totally dry and uninspiring. Some good information but not a fun way to learn. Jun 07, Matthew rated it it was ok. This is a text book for my master's program.

It is dry. I expected it to be dry. It has a lot of information but it didn't make the subject matter interesting. Oct 17, Matt rated it it was amazing. This is the leader's bible. Yukl discusses key strategies to all aspects of leadership, synthesizing research into practical tools anyone leader can apply. A very informative textbook. Apr 20, Chariel Dye is currently reading it.

I am on Chapter 4. Apr 20, princesspwny rated it liked it. Certainly not something I would ever read for pleasure, but provided a good overview of general concepts and techniques for the class I am taking.
