About this Textbook

This book on business psychology—particularly organizational leadership—crosses industries, continents, and business environments: it includes 45 précis on emerging theories of leadership; ethical and cultural considerations; group and team leadership; leadership self-development; management philosophy and practice; organizational diagnosis and cultural dynamics; personality and lifespan in the workplace; professional development; qualitative research methods; psychological, socio-cultural, and political dimensions of organizations; the role of technology in organizations; strategic change management; and systems theory. The material ranges widely but is pithy: each précis offers in easy bites the latest "take" on the subject, drawing from popular textbooks, recommended readings, case studies, group exercises, personal experience, and self-reflection; each was written as a key to understanding and change with an eye to re-imagining leadership in the 21st century. Both rigorously researched and entertaining, this book addresses the fast-changing realities of organizational leadership in domestic and international settings across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors: it will serve as a valuable quick-access resource for practitioners and students.

About the authors

Olivier Serrat is an author, speaker, consultant, and researcher in the field of organizational leadership. His interest in organizational effectiveness grew while working on agriculture, environment, and natural resources in Asia and the Pacific, where in more than a dozen countries he worked to promote prosperity, inclusiveness, resilience, and sustainability. Olivier spearheaded knowledge management at the Asian Development Bank from 2008–2012. In consideration of the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of general conditions and situations in the 21st century, he sees that we must—beyond preoccupation with leadership styles—learn to lead in new ways of organizing. At the intersection of complexity leadership, metagovernance, and knowledge management (especially sensemaking), Olivier investigates how to lead organizations of the future.
