Overview

The workaday tasks that managers have to tackle in public and nonprofit organizations are numerous and complex - and at times so overwhelming that managers may forget that they have another, more fundamental role: leadership. In this stimulating book, Richard Lynch shows managers how to become leaders - people who bring out the best in themselves, their organizations, and their people. He describes what leadership is and reveals how the leadership role transcends traditional management tasks. And he explores how leaders can encourage superlative performance by the people in their organizations. "What people are capable of doing is the greatest unexploited resource of any organization," says Lynch. "LEAD! is a book for managers who want to tap that potential." Drawing on numerous real-life examples from government agencies and nonprofit organizations, Lynch explains how public and nonprofit leaders can enhance their personal influence, establish a sense of collective purpose, design jobs that reward employees for meaningful results, create a streamlined organizational structure, foster and sustain meaningful values, keep employees hopeful in hard times, and create a positive organizational climate. He describes how leaders' actions affect the organizational climate, and he explores the positive effects those actions can have on the people being led.
