The Jossey-Bass Academic Administrator's Guide to Exemplary Leadership.
Kouzes, James M.; Posner, Barry Z.
This book shows how anyone can develop the key leadership skills needed to "get extraordinary things done" on their college and university campuses. It outlines the principles and practices that are solidly based in more than two decades of quantitative and qualitative research. The book: describes the proven Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership; explains the fundamental principles supporting the key leadership practices; provides actual case examples of real people on college and university campuses who demonstrate each practice; offers specific recommendations on what to do to own these practices; and shows how to continue to develop as a leader. Nine chapters focus on: (1) "Leadership is a Relationship"; (2) "Model the Way"; (3) "Inspire a Shared Vision"; (4) "Challenge the Process"; (5) "Enable Others to Act"; (6) "Encourage the Heart"; and (7) "Leadership is Everyone's Business."
