Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Are leaders born or made? Do they have particular traits or are we all potential leaders? Keith Grint examines the notion of leadership as an array of 'arts' in a series of rich essay portraits of some of the most famous, and infamous, leaders (for example Florence Nightingale, Richard Branson, Henry Ford, Horatio Nelson, Adolf Hitler, and Martin Luther King). With scenarios drawn from across the spectrum to include business, politics, society, and the military, this book will be of interest to anyone curious about the nature and function of leadership.


well written ... truly a voyage of remarkable insight into comparative success and failure situations in different contexts ... It is steeped in social and political history, which makes it unique and, for any managers who are students of history, a wonderful excursion. ... fascinating, illuminating and absorbing
—Cary Cooper, THES
