A concise and practical guide to what leadership is and how administrators and other academic leaders can improve their leadership skills. Based on the popular ATLAS workshop and webinar, An Introduction to Academic Leadership, this guide explains why leadership at a college or university often looks so different from corporate, military, or athletic leadership and gives faculty members and administrators practical advice on how to proceed. Includes exercises, inventories, case studies, a summary of key points, and questions for reflection, all of which can help take your academic leadership to the next level of excellence.

Additional exercises.
Many more case studies.
Full page of additional resources for further study.
