"Leadership and Information Processing" focuses on understanding how executives make decisions and how decision acceptance is constrained by the leadership perceptions of others. Both executive decisions and leadership perceptions are viewed as continuous, reciprocal, social-cognitive processes that must be understood within a historical and cultural context.
This book is accessible to beginning students of leadership, organizational behavior, organizational theory, and social cognition. The integrative information processing framework advances thinking on several topics relating to leadership, including: leadership and social perceptions; perceptions of female leaders; dyadic leadership; organizational culture; effects of executive succession; internal and external executive leadership; the role of leaders in organizational change; and traits relating to effective executive leadership.
