Overview

This book details characteristics and behaviors manifested by effective leaders and discussion of how their behavior was informed by leadership theory. Robert Palestini describes the leadership practice of professional baseball coaches as a way to illustrate situational leadership theory, offering the reader examples of leadership behavior in the four leadership frames suggested by Bolman and Deal's situational leadership theory. This book demonstrates how someone can become a very effective leader in both his personal and professional life.
