A flexible approach to understanding and applying leadership.

Level Three Leadership (L3L) uses a flexible leadership model to help students and practicing managers understand and apply the principles of leadership. This text focuses on what managers can do to influence the thinking and feeling of others–rather than focusing on changing behaviour. The fifth edition has been significantly enhanced with additions based on the recommendations of reviewers and users.


  • Flexible Leadership Model. This text provides a flexible leadership model that guides students through the steps necessary to create their own, practically applicable, model for influencing others.
  • Diamond Model of Leadership. This model focuses on self and strategic tasks to influencing others while showing how to design functional organizations and manage change.
  • The Leadership Point of View (LPV). The material was written from a leadership point of view, encouraging students to ask the following questions:
  • Do I see what needs to be done?
  • Do I understand all the forces at play?
  • Do I have courage to act and make things better?
  • Chapter-ending summary on key concepts. These end-of-chapter questions encourage students to reflect on the key concepts in the chapter they just read. Also provided in the end-of-chapter material includes:
  • A short case to help students apply the concepts
  • A guidance workbook with related activities
  • An invitation to submit more caselets online
  • The text includes chapters on the Language of Leadership and how speech can help them to lead more effectively.
  • A new six-point decision model has been included in the chapter on Leadership and Ethics.
  • A new discussion on stress management has also been included in this edition.
