Psychology Press congratulates the authors of The New Psychology of Leadership!

The New Psychology of Leadership book jacket

We are delighted to announce that The New Psychology of Leadership has won the University of San Diego Outstanding Leadership Book Award 2012! This award is presented annually to books recently published that represent exceptional scholarship, innovative thinking, and significant contribution to the field of leadership.

Leadership Book Award Chair, Zachary Green said: "We were particularly impressed by how New Psychology offers a refreshing way to examine the complexities of identity and its influence on the process and practice of leadership. With clear examples, cogent arguments, and careful critical analysis, the authors have crafted a work that is accessible and provocative. The basic tenet that there is an embedded representation—a “we-ness” –at the core of leadership is worthy of deeper exploration, rigorous debate, and further study. The strength of the work will challenge practitioners to examine their approaches to organizations and invite scholars to consider their allegiances to prevailing theory." The award will be presented at the International Leadership Association Conference in Denver, Colorado on October 25th 2012.
