Definitions and thoughts about leadership have been replicated in words and actions by great leaders of the times. For instance, General George Patton’s avowal that one can either lead, follow, or get out of the way dovetails the classification of leadership theory and research through three relevant elements; leaders, followers, and the situation.
Noted Mahatma Gandhi, an eminent civil rights leader of movement for the Indian independence, “at one time, leadership may have meant muscles, but today it means getting along with people.” Thus, the charismatic portrait of the modern leadership looks nothing like Fidel Castro. It is a faceless portrait that epitomizes the toughness of Ronald Reagan, Nelson Mandela’s charisma, and the most compassionate heart of Mother Theresa.
This book is a qualitative phenomenological research study about Nigerian citizens living through a political, economic, social, and cultural leadership catastrophe.
