Book Review: The end of leadership by B. Kellerman
V.Y. Mgomezulu

Kellerman raises the point that leadership has been the subject of many discussions, studies, research and initiatives by individuals, corporations and non-profit organisations for several decades and yet symptoms and consequences of poor leadership abound. The author charts a historical account of the development of leadership over centuries and analyses practices in the corporate and non-profit organisations. She contends that the notion of leadership has transformed over time.
