5.0 out of 5 stars Quantum Leadership September 5, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Amazing how common sense Quantum Leadership really is. I am looking forward to the day when the heirarchical approach to leadership will truly be non-existent so that creativity from those at lower levels may be realized and utilized to ensure necessary changes are made. Thank you Porter-O'Grady & Malloch for a great text - easy to read from cover to cover!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a text book folks. February 3, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Yes, it is a text book about leadership; although, there is little mention of its source of ethics ... other than the names of those organizations whom have employed them from some other authority. But, it is a text book after all and is subject to the bias of the current moral trends among scholars and within academic domains.

All that aside, this is a very useful text for learning about leadership in the workplace in our current day and age. I am curious how it will be revised in a decade from now though.

1.0 out of 5 stars The bane of my existence November 26, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to read this book for a graduate level course and I do not recommend it to anyone outside of the course. This book is excessively redundant and poorly written. The size of the book could have been cut in half if the authors did not repeat themselves and put down their thesaurus. The diagrams and flow charts also make no sense. Save yourself and do not read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas, terrible website January 27, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is not bad, there are interesting ideas. I just wish the publisher's website was more user-friendly. I registered the book when I bought it but am now unable to log-in. I contacted tech support and will update this depending on the service I get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another set of leadership elements November 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Leadership is determined by five factors - a group's personality, the task to be accomplished, the environment in which the task is performed, the amount of time and resources allocated to the task.

This book does not discuss any of these, but rather stands as a prolonged case study of how one man's methods and philosophy have resulted in desirable benefits for him and those with whom he worked during his years in management.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A student in the DNP program recommended that I purchase my book on Amazon.com and I am so glad I did for I saved money on the purchase of a new textbook, Quantum Leadership, Advancing Innovation, Transforming Health Care, 3rd Edition, Tim Porter-O'Grady and Kathy Malloch. I am passing the word along to other students.
