Effective leadership is currently seen as the key to achieving service transformation across a wide range of public services around the world. To date however, there has been little questioning of what new models of leadership are required. In "Lessons in Leadership" ""the authors set leadership within a policy and strategy development framework and explores the extent to which particular leadership competencies and behavior traits may be necessary to realize the major agendas for change being set by governments internationally.
"Lessons in" "Leadership "enables the reader to take an informed view on key topics such as:
* the tensions that can arise between administrative / bureaucratic traditions and the leadership styles required today
* the relationship between political leadership and organizational leadership
* different approaches that have been adopted by public service leaders in organizations around the globe and their level of success
* the extent to which existing theories of leadership are appropriate for a new management context.
"Lessons in Leadership" draws on real-life examples from Australia, the European Union and North America to demonstrate the applications of leadership theory in public services management and raises some challenging questions around whether new models or paradigms may be required in order to move forward in this area.
