PDU Value: 1 - Leadership
Leadership, “good” “bad” leaders, their perceived qualities, their industries and the firms they work for are on display on a regular basis. Naturally, the concept of leadership is far reaching. We see it in dissertations, news periodicals, TV shows, and in social networking communities. However, scholars such as Bennis and Nanus (1985) and Vroom and Jago (2007) assert that no clear and unequivocal understanding exists with respect to the concept of leadership. In this presentation, I will be discussing the practical and philosophical implications related to this phenomena.
