When I began to view each chapter as an individual piece of work the book made more sense. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 40, Organizational Change Practices. What organization these days isn’t trying to implement change?

Hickman, Gill Robinson. This volume provides a framework for examining issues pertaining to the leadership of these new organisations.

This text includes 50 short chapters from the most prominent international scholars of leadership who provide students with invaluable overviews, insights, and perspectives on leadership in today’s organizations. The book has a central organizing framework outlining the components of leadership (which is presented in the Introduction). It incorporates a new section on shared responsibility for leadership, new chapters on the external environment and on dysfunctional or unethical leadership behavior, a new section on inclusion, together with coverage of all the classic leadership theories, with updated chapters covering vision, mission, and structure that enhance the relevance of these theories in today's organizational context.

I thought the book was disorganized at first, as each chapter was written by different authors with Hickman as editor. When I began to view each chapter as an individual piece of work the book made more sense.

I particularly enjoyed Chapter 40, Organizational Change Practices. What organization these days isn’t trying to implement change?
The first point in this chapter is that organizations approach change through collective or collaborative change approaches and within those institutionalized-leadership, organizational learning, and empowerment/shared power. The results of a 2001 study by O’Toole indicates the organizations with highest collective leadership capacity are those who used “systems” of institutionalized-leadership and change practices. In other words, enabling systems versus a single person at the top. That is a real obvious conclusion, but if you think about it, not many organizations are willing to allow change in any manner but strictly controlled from the top. The chapter goes on to credit Donald Schon, who in 1971, reached a similar conclusion regarding change implemented through “learning systems.”

Another thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this chapter was the reference to Peter Senge’s work in 1990. He stated the five essential elements must exist as an ensemble to create learning organizations: Personal mastery, mental models, shared vision, team learning, and systems thinking. I love reading Senge! His work is so easy to read.

It was when I ran into this reference for Senge’s work that I realized that each chapter has the potential to become the condensed version of other great works. With each chapter viewed individually, this book has the potential to become your reference book you will keep in your office – and use for years.

This was a required text for a graduate course, but it turned out to be one of those books that you'd want even if not required. It follows the recent developments in leadership perspective by presenting an extensive collection of writings by the leading proponents of differing paradigms. It allows the reader to follow the development and put each theory into a developmental perspective. If the topic of organizational leadership interests you, this if a great read.

This was one of the texts for my PhD. program in public policy. The essays were wonderful on leadership and organziation change. A real asset for the class and as I begin working on my dissertation. The top researchers in the field are in this book.

Here we are moving into the 21st century and organizations are changing. Organizations change in respect to power and influence, shared leadership, innovation, adaptatibility, inclusion, and social responsibility. This book explores the organizational environment towards new responsibilities of organizational leadership. I enjoyed the easy read, the concepts were explained openly, and the book was an excellent guide through my course of study in organizational leadership. I recommend this book highly for the doctoral level student.
