Leadership literature is like 'getting rich' literature. Most of it meanders between grossly trivial and outright shallow. The 10 articles featured here are not on the shallow end as far as methods are concerned - an interesting tour d'horizon in that regard - but at the end of the day, they fall short of their claim to offer guidance how organisations can have the right leaders; and moreover, they fall short of critically assessing if leaders actually matter. So, my personal 'must read' would be: Download Drucker's article about 'Effective executive' for free, and buy 'Leadership: A Very Short Introduction' (Oxford University Press) by Keith Grint.
