Abstract:

The focus of the volume is on influence processes in formal organizations. It is based on an integration of basic and applied research on leadership, drawing upon review of more than 1000 separate titles. The most important conclusion reached in this work is the importance of distinguishing between the concepts of leadership, power, and authority, and of identifying superordinate role behaviors that constitute each. The volume also provides a basis for identifying fruitful work in organizational leadership and for immediate application of existing organizational and leadership findings.
