Prosocial Leadership: Understanding the Development of Prosocial Behavior within Leaders and their Organizational Settings – eBook PDF
Prosocial Leadership, (PDF) explores the behavioral phenomenon that is intended to help in the benefit of others, known as prosocial behavior. The author integrates eight years of quantitative and qualitative research to describe and delineate the antecedents to prosocial leadership and arrange these findings into a comprehensible model for prosocial leadership development. This ground-breaking textbook is the first to integrate the elements of prosocial followership, development, and altruism as essential components to leadership. It further studies the behaviors, values, and ideas leading to the creation of prosocial leadership within individuals and organizations.
“Leadership as a field is becoming increasingly balkanized as it seems that, almost daily, another author reclaims they have found a new, groundbreaking approach to the theory and practice of leadership. Ewest’s latest work is a refreshing contribution that bucks this trend through a developmental framework grounded in other-centered empathy and altruistic prosocial behaviors. Most importantly it broadens and forwards the conversation regarding leadership to include intrinsic motivation and personal moral development as essential qualities for any model of leadership effectiveness.” — Louis W. (Jody) Fry, Ph.D.

“Dr. Ewest has presented a text that will be a wonderful addition to any Ethics, Leadership, or Ethical leadership course. I have genuinely been searching for resources such as this, which incorporates (prosocial) values into discussions of why and how leaders do ethical leadership. This ebook will be an insightful enhancement to my Ethics& Leadership courses, specifically in the section addressing Giving Voice to Values, as it provides a model for becoming ethical leaders. I look forward to using it with my students and recommending it widely.” — Faith Wambura Ngunjiri, Associate Professor, Ethics & Leadership, Director, Lorentzsen Center for Faith and Work, Concordia College, MN, USA
