A good leader has many roles. He/she is a communicator, a mentor, and a problem solver. Most importantly, a leader can teach others how to develop their own qualities and to succeed in any career or business. The roles and responsibilities of a leader are always changing, but one thing remains the same, behind every success, there is a leader that is willing to embrace and conquer the challenge. Leadership in Organizations will identify the different styles, techniques, and images of a successful leader while incorporating how to develop and fine-tune your leadership skills. Leadership in Organizations is one title in the Professional Development Series by South-Western. This series is the perfect resource for learning the non-technical strategies and tactics needed to compete in today's business world.
