Strauss, Jon C.

An experienced college president offers sometimes tongue-in-cheek advice to new presidents, including insights into relationships with constituencies, interpersonal skills, the role of the spouse, accepting advice, sharing confidences, persistence, choosing priorities for change, audience awareness in public speaking, development, community service, boards of trustees, and failure in leadership.
