Book

Professionalizing Leadership: Debating Education, Certification and Practice

Under the general editorship: A. Örtenblad​.

- Offers engaging debate surrounding leadership as a profession

- Includes contributions from a diverse number of experts 

- Comprehensively illustrates the arguments for and against presenting leadership as a profession

This book presents a lively debate surrounding the professionalization of leadership. With
contributions from both sides of the argument, it considers the historical overview of leadership
and management as a profession, questions what constitutes a profession, and critically
addresses the practicality of professionalizing leadership. With a range of perspectives including
political philosophy, behavioral professionalism and management history, the book intends to
facilitate further discussion on the issues at stake. With a number of education programs
beginning to focus on the art and practice of leading people, this debate is particularly timely.
