About this book

Examining perceptions of leaders which are dependent on social and cultural contexts, this edited collection argues that in order to thrive and to understand the future business landscape, leaders must be inclusive and create followership. With existing research tending to conflate leadership roles with notions of masculinity and agency, this study provides examples of how to alter and challenge prevalent stereotypes and ultimately contribute to greater organisational effectiveness. Addressing the under-representation of women in leadership roles, contributions explore inclusivity and exclusivity in leading organisations, the politics of gendered differences and the value of leader-follower dynamics. Inclusive Leadership will be of great use to business leaders, employees, policy-makers, and academics seeking practical implications for formulating effective leader-follower strategies in organisations.

Reviews

“In our ever-inclusive society good leadership relies on inspiring our next leaders to take up the mantle, and dismantling prejudicial hurdles to their success. I have faith research like this edited volume can help the world understand that good leadership is not about any one man’s power – but the betterment of our society as a whole.” (Minister Adam Marshall, Member for Northern Tablelands)

“Inclusive leadership challenges the stereotype that “women take care and men take charge” by showing how women can, and should, be leaders as well as followers. Employing personal experiences and conceptual themes the authors show how valuable leadership can be when it includes women. I wish I had read this in my twenties!” (Professor Gillian Triggs, Australian Human Rights Commission)
