Leaders and Managers: International Perspectives on Managerial Behavior and Leadership focuses on research on managerial behavior and leadership, with emphasis on present and future trends as well as the need to identify an interdisciplinary point of view in the study of leadership. Composed of 24 chapters, the book discusses leadership and management, and at times puts little emphasis on the differences of both subjects for they are often used interchangeably. The book takes a look at the position in which functionalism can be used as an approach in studying leadership. The text also presents research methodologies that are deemed helpful in studying managerial behavior. The role of organizational leaders and the problems related with efficiently carrying out order in organizations are highlighted. Different types of research models on leadership are also discussed. The book is valuable to those involved in studying leadership and management, particularly in organizations in which these two entities can be essential factors in their advancement.
