Are you puzzled by how to approach and resolve the leadership dilemmas which arise in your everyday experience, and for which you do not feel prepared? Do you wish that the conventional textbook on management and leadership seemed somehow more relevant to you, and that the challenges it posed seemed, perhaps, a little more… challenging? Why is it that we find some of the characters of fiction so engrossing? Why do we identify with them and their dilemmas, and why do they remain in our minds long after we have "finished" the book in question? We suggest that literature and the fictional leaders it contains have very much more to offer us than a "good read," and that this is a neglected source. Fictional Leaders contains sixteen in-depth and fascinating studies of leaders all over the world. Perhaps your favorite fictional hero, villain or absent friend is already amongst them!

‘Whether you are studying leadership, or doing leadership, this is a rollicking good read, and a fabulously rich book.’ - Ken Parry, Professor of Leadership Studies and co-Director of the Deakin Leadership Centre, Australia He came to France an immigrant and left an exile – but, in a career spanning just 35 years, he became general, consul and emperor. How did Napoleon’s name come to be synonymous with brilliance, legend and glory despite displaying opportunistic and manipulative tendencies, and repeatedly deserting those that followed him? 200 years after his defeat, what lessons can we learn from his successes and his failures? As the world marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, this fascinating study on leadership and power tackles the questions that continue to intrigue and mystify. As now, power was gained and held by political manipulation, patronage, fear, putsch, charisma, popular vote and the new idea of meritocracy. Through the inclusion of Reflections and Questions, Jones and Gosling also highlight some important lessons for current and future managers and leaders.
