Leadership: Enhancing the Lessons of Experience, 6/e consists of 13 chapters and three leadership skills sections integrated into the text. Authors Hughes, Ginnett, and Curphy draw upon three different types of literature—empirical studies; interesting anecdotes, stories and findings; and leadership skills—to create a text that is personally relevant, interesting, and scholarly. The authors’ unique quest for a careful balancing act of leadership materials helps students apply theory and research to their real-life experiences. The Sixth Edition has been thoroughly updated in virtually every chapter.

New chapter (13) Leadership and Change. Organizations are undergoing constant change, and the people working within the system need tools for leading under all circumstances. This new chapter provides detailed information on the leadership challenges faced in both stable and dynamic organizational environments.
Each chapter concludes with a section indicating which leadership skills are most relevant to the content of that chapter, which will help students retain and apply the material.
Suggested classroom activities are found at the end of each chapter to enhance student interaction and application.
Leadership Quotes (formerly known as Highlights) are interspersed throughout the chapters and provide interesting illustrations related to the textual material.
Based on reviewer feedback, the Contingency Theories have been moved from Chapter 3 to Chapter 12 so that students will have more foundational knowledge before attacking this complex topic.
The focus on 3 particular leaders: Madeline Allbright, Colin Powell, and Konosuke Matsushita are interspersed throughout the chapters to enhance the text's currency and integration.
Leadership skills are located in Part V of the text, enhancing the continuity from chapter to chapter and making it more readable.
