Foreword
Everyone is talking about leadership. But what are the common approaches, camps and theories? What is current, what are the new classics and what is obsolete? The crisis and the latest Web 2.0 developments have not rendered the topic any less relevant. Which school of thought is closest to yours? This five-part reader on leadership, with its overview of approaches, developments and trends, provides references and guidance to help you anchor your own point of view.
Various scientific theories and approaches are described and contrasted, and their evolution is traced over time. In Part 1: Earliest Theories, the study describes the first theories of leadership, which were originally formulated in the United States and in Germany. Part 2: Systemic Leadership focuses on developments specific to the German-speaking countries. Part 3: Leadership as a Relational Phenomenon, Transformational Leadership, Values and Ethics discusses the development of leadership theories that take into account not only the leader, but also those who follow, the situation and the organization. Part 4: Motivation, Power and Psyche explores psychological research into the personality of the leader. Part 5: Leadership Today concludes the review of this topic, discussing representatives of the new classics in leadership research as well as the latest approaches and trends in the field, including leadership in light of Web 2.0. We end with a discussion of cultural aspects of leadership that are unique to Germany, taking into account the GLOBE study.
Our aim is to provide support for you in your daily, practical work with your executive board, colleagues and employees, and to contribute to the discussion about leaership in Germany and elsewhere.

Introduction and Overview
Leadership is a social phenomenon that is found everywhere, a deeply human endeavor. For a long time, philosophers, scholars and leaders themselves have sought to develop models for organizing and exercising leadership in the best possible way. Even today, however, there is no single theory of leadership that applies in every case. Indeed, according to Weibler (2004), the main task for current leadership research is to determine exactly what is meant by the term leadership. Interest has centered on a variety of aspects of leadership—the intentions of the leader, leadership behavior or effectiveness in achieving a goal. Former United States President Harry Truman defined leadership as “the ability to get other people to do what they don’t want to do and like it.” Frances Hesselbein describes leadership as “a matter of how to be, not how to do. We spend most of our lives mastering how to do things, but in the end it is the quality and character of the individual that defines the performance of great leaders” (Hesselbein, 1990: xii). Peter Northouse defines leadership as a process whereby one individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal (Northouse, 2007: 3). Heifetz describes leadership as the ability, through various activities, to mobilize people and organizations to adapt to changing conditions (Heifetz 1998). The main objective of this volume is not to define the concept of leadership, nor to formulate a single, all-encompassing, universally valid theory. Instead, it is to offer the reader a brief overview of a number of different academic theories. Common to all of the models covered in this book is that they seek to describe the phenomenon of “leadership” and/or to provide ideas about ways to (or not to) organize leadership effectively.
