This important book successfully blends theory and practice to address authentic leadership from a non-essentialist angle. Drawing extensively on existentialist philosophy, it presents an alternative understanding of authenticity that challenges the essentialist notion of selfhood.

In this second edition, Neil Thompson explores leadership as a people-centred undertaking, placing emphasis on the need for leaders to take ownership of their choices, and encourage their followers to do the same. New chapters address key issues such as workplace wellbeing, spirituality in the workplace, and remote and hybrid working. Thompson focuses on the human dimensions of leadership, as well as the significance of the workplace as a distinctly human social space.

Authentic Leadership Revisited is a highly accessible resource crucial to the understanding of selfhood as a fluid concept. It will be of interest to students of management and leadership, as well as those studying philosophy and the sociology of organisations. Practising managers and leaders seeking illuminating examples of exemplary leadership behaviours will also find it beneficial.
