MANAGEMENT OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR ---UTILIZING HUMAN RESOURCES
by Paul Hersey and Kenneth H. Blanchard. Prentice-Hall, 4th edition, 1982.



PREFACE (xii-xviii)

    This fourth edition clarifies, updates, and enhances the earlier information and significantly adds to the sections that deal with the "developmental cycle" and the concept of "constructive discipline."

    This edition focuses in depth on the concept of power as it applies to "leadership effectiveness." Since "power" is properly defined as "influence potential," the effective leader must understand from where power is derived, what power bases are available, and how to use the power bases wisely!
