Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The content is comprehensive and well-organized. I believe the topics are organized in a nice "stair-stepping" method so that each topic builds upon the previous. The first several chapters dealing with the "individual" as a leader are clear and concise. The chapters take an in-depth look at leaders and what it entails to be a leader--but it is done in an easy-to-read manner."

"I appreciate the amount and application of leadership theories. This book contains the best balance between theory and practice, and ties them together nicely."
