A Pulitzer Prize–winning historian examines transformational leaders from Moses to Machiavelli to Martin Luther King Jr. in this “impressive book” (The Washington Post). Historian and political scientist James MacGregor Burns has spent much of his career documenting the use and misuse of power by leaders throughout history. In this groundbreaking study, Burns examines the qualities that make certain leaders—in America and elsewhere—succeed as transformative figures. Through insightful anecdotes and historical analysis, Burns scrutinizes the charisma, vision, and persuasive power of individuals able to imbue followers with a common sense of purpose, from the founding fathers to FDR, Gandhi to Napoleon. Since its original publication in 1970, Leadership has set the standard for scholarship in the field.

Leadership for the Twenty first Century

This illuminating study critiques the concept of leadership as understood in the last 75 years and looks to the twenty-first century for a reconstructed understanding of leadership in the postindustrial era. More similarities in past decades were found than had been thought; the thread throughout Rost's book is that leadership was conceived of as good management. He develops a new definition and paradigm for leadership in this volume that distinguishes leadership from management in fundamental ways. The ethics of leadership from a postindustrial perspective completes the paradigm. The book concludes with suggestions that can be immediately utilized in helping to transform our understanding of leadership.

W hrend die Thematik des Leaderships, also der F hrung und des F hrungsverhaltens in der Wirtschaft und dem ffentlichen Sektor, besonders im amerikanischen Raum, schon seit Jahrzehnten eine wichtige Rolle einnimmt und wissenschaftlich diskutiert wird, ist in Deutschland erst langsam eine Entwicklung zu erkennen. Besonders im dritten Sektor der non-profit-organisations werden die Erkenntnisse um Leadership eher noch vernachl ssigt (vgl. Brink / Eurich, 2009, S. 9). Der Sozialbereich in Deutschland erlebt einen Wandel, in dem sich die Rahmenbedingungen immer st rker auf konomische Aspekte beziehen. Die Entwicklung neuer Sozialmanagement-Konzepte zeigt sich im sprunghaften Anstieg entsprechender Studieng nge und Fortbildungsangebote. Die Koordination und Erbringung sozialer Dienstleistungen stellt die Organisationen und die verantwortlichen MitarbeiterInnen vor neue Herausforderungen die Leadership-Qualit ten erforderlich machen (vgl. Brink / Eurich, 2009, S. 9). Wenn wir uns nach Kurt Buchinger und Herbert Schober die Entwicklung der Organisationslandschaft der letzten 50 Jahre betrachten, so kann festgestellt werden, dass die vorwiegend hierarchisch aufgebaute Organisationsstruktur von Unternehmen und Institutionen einer horizontalen Machtstruktur mehr und mehr Beachtung schenkt. Der klassische Vorgesetzte, der innerhalb traditioneller, klar geregelter Strukturen seine Mitarbeiter defizitorientiert kontrolliert (also nur bei Verst en des Ablaufs einschreitend), scheint nicht mehr ein zeitgem es, von dauerhaftem Erfolg gekr ntes Modell zu sein. Auf den nun folgenden Seiten werde ich Definitionen von Leadership darstellen und welche Anforderungen besonders auf Seiten der F hrungskr fte und der allgemeinen Organisations- und Unternehmenskultur gestellt werden. Die Rolle von Visionen (fernab esoterischer Definitionen) und Zielen, die als Werkzeuge von Leadership fungieren, werden ebenfalls dargestellt. Die Anforderungen an die F hrungsebene sind Gegenstand der Be
