The Art of the Presidency.
Rhodes, Frank H. T.
Presidency, v1 n1 p12-18 Spr 1998
A university president emeritus offers lessons on effective leadership, focusing on five areas presidents often neglect: personal exhaustion; muddled or lack of priorities; relationships with family members and friends; personal isolation; and intellectual starvation. Suggested antidotes include serious reading, continued teaching, participation in substantive lectures and symposia, maintenance of meaningful research interest, and nurture of the inner life. (MSE)
