This collection of papers, with their focus on social change in different settings and through a wide range of voices, offers a fresh view of both Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), and, ultimately, the relationship between the two. This volume is the first to make explicit this connection so that novices as well as experienced researchers examining the two fields under one microscope can more fully understand how they are related and how CDA can draw on analytical tools rooted in SFL.

When Simon Western's Leadership text first published, it received rave reviews from students, academics and practising leaders and managers all over the world. Written in an accessible style, the book challenges the notion of the individual or hero leader. Western develops the idea of leadership as a distributed process and provides a new framework for understanding and implementing this. Part one deconstructs leadership, providing a critical review and analysis of the key debates within leadership; part two reconstructs leadership, revealing the three dominant discourses of the Controller, Therapist and Messiah, and Eco-leadership discourse. Eco-leadership captures new leadership ideas and practices for twenty-first century organizations. This widely anticipated second edition has been updated in line with recent events and the latest practice and research, with end of chapter questions encouraging reflection on key issues. This insightful and inspiring text draws on Western's diverse consulting experience, combining theory and practice to offer insights into the real challenges facing leaders today. It is ideal reading for MBA and postgraduate students of Leadership, OB and HRM as well as practising managers and leaders. An electronic inspection copy is available for instructors.

Focusing on the value that can be created when the relationships between the people delivering and those using public services are effective, the contributors explore the conditions required to nourish confidence, inspire self-esteem, unlock potential, and balance inequality.

Discursive Leadership: In Conversation with Leadership Psychology presents a new, groundbreaking way for scholars and graduate students to examine and explore leadership. Differing from a psychological approach to leadership which tries to get inside the heads of leaders and employees, author Gail Fairhurst focuses on the social or communicative aspects between them. A discursive approach to leadership introduces a host of relatively new ideas and concepts and helps us understand leadership's changing role in organizations.
