Abstract: Interpersonal Leadership: An Applied Guide offers two major benefits. On the one hand, it provides a systematic and very thorough overview of over a century worth of leadership research. On the other, it provides a systematic introduction to key leader responsibilities and effective leader behaviors that, combined with a strong focus on the influence of intercultural differences and a multitude of practical tips and helpful tools, are of great value for beginning and experienced leaders alike in today's increasingly globalized economy. The book starts out with an introduction to the practice and field of leadership, including a discussion of its definition, nature, and impact. Following this, the evolution of leadership research and theory is traced in order to provide background on why we are where we are today. A next chapter deals with the traits and behaviors of effective leaders, followed by one about the primary leader responsibilities and competencies. A chapter each is also dedicated to leading across borders and cultures and to fundamental leadership principles and classic leadership mistakes. Finally, the important topic of leadership development is examined. The contents, although based on a very thorough review of the extant literature, are heavily influenced by the author's substantial leadership experience, which spans more than thirty years in the military and the private and public sectors. Additionally, they reflect his extensive interactions with executives around the globe, both during projects and while teaching on various Executive MBA and Master of Science programs. What makes this book unique is the combination of academic rigor and ease-of-use, together with a number of new and innovative concepts about leadership and many helpful examples, tips, and tools as well as a range of illustrative exercises.
