Leadership Theory and Practice
Exploring Leadership for College Students Who Want to Make a Difference Susan R. Komives, Nance Lucas, and Timothy R. McMahan, 1998 What comes to mind when you hear the word leadership? Do you think of international or national figures like Golda Meir, Lee Iacocca, Bill Clinton, Wilma Mankiller, Martin Luther King Jr., Henry Cisneros, Mohandas Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Corazon Aquino, or General Colin Powell? Our brains somehow immediately translate the word leadership to mean leader. You probably just did the same thing. You probably imagined a company president, a Prime Minister, your professor, your supervisor at work, or the person standing at a podium with a gavel. However, the premise of this book is that leadership is a relational process of people working together to accomplish change or to make a difference that will benefit the common good. In other words, leadership is about relationships. And you can be part of the leadership process, whether as a formal leader or as an active, committed group member.

intervention, coaching, and more. Perfect for individual or group use, Students Helping Students is a long-awaited guide for students and campus professionals. Paperback, 272 pages The Leadership Challenge James Kouzes, Barry Posner, 2002 When it was initially written in 1987, few could have predicted that The Leadership Challenge would become one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. Now, faced with the new challenges of our unpredictable global business environment, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner--two of the country's premier leadership experts--have completely revised and updated their classic book. Building on the knowledge base of their previous books, the third edition of The Leadership Challenge is grounded in extensive research and based on interviews with all kinds of leaders at all levels in public and private organizations from around the world. In this edition, the authors emphasize that the fundamentals of leadership are the same today as they were in the 1980s, and as they've probably been for centuries. In that sense, nothing's new. Leadership is not a fad. While the content of leadership has not changed, the context has-and in some cases, changed dramatically. Focus on Leadership: Servant-Leadership for the 21st Century Larry C. Spears (Editor), Michele Lawrence (Editor), Ken Blanchard, 2001 This collection of inspiring essays focuses on the practice of servant-leadership in organizational and business settings. Focus on Leadership addresses how servant-leadership is now increasingly recognized as being on the forefront of emerging leadership thinking. Hardcover, 416 pages Developing The Leader Within You John C. Maxwell, 2000 Few of us are natural-born leaders, according to John C. Maxwell, author of Developing the Leader Within You. Fortunately though, "the traits that are the raw material of leadership can be acquired," he promises. "Link them up with desire and nothing can keep you from becoming a leader. This book will supply the leadership principles. You must supply the desire." True to his words, Maxwell offers a detailed and inspiring primer on becoming a leader. Hardcover, 208 pages Developing the Leader Within You Workbook by John C.

John Maxwell shows readers how to develop the vision, value, influence, and motivation required of successful leaders. Paperback, 224 pages Developing The Leaders Around You: How to Help Others Reach Their Full Potential John C. Maxwell, 2003 John Maxwell, one of the nation's leading figures in the area of personal and corporate leadership development, turns his attention to the art of developing leadership capabilities in the people who surround you. Dr. John C. Maxwell is committed to more than just being a leader—he’s also committed to nurturing and mentoring thousands of potential leaders around him. This passion is what caused him to found INJOY and EQUIP, and it is the driving force in his ministry. Both practical and inspirational, Developing the Leaders Around You is crammed with strategies that help you effectively transform your goals into reality by building leadership in the people around you. Emphasizing that an organization can't grow until its members grow, Dr. Maxwell encourages readers to foster a productive team spirit, make difficult decisions, handle confrontation, and to nurture, encourage, and equip people to be leaders. Hardcover, 224 pages The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell, Zig Ziglar, 1998 John C. Maxwell offers lively stories about the foibles and successes of Lee Iacocca, Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, and Elizabeth Dole in The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Readers can expect a well-crafted discussion that emphasizes the core attitudes and visions of leadership. Maxwell uses the same tell-it-like-it-is approach that he honed in the bestselling Developing the Leader Within You. For instance, when explaining "The Law of Influence," Maxwell states that "job titles don't have much value when it comes to leading. True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed or assigned. It comes only from influence and that can't be mandated." Even after Princess Diana was stripped of her title, Maxwell says she was still able to lead a global effort toward banning land mines because of her sophisticated ability to influence others. Hardcover, 256 pages Leadership and the New Science: Learning About Organization from an Orderly Universe Margaret J. Wheatley, 1994 Margaret Wheatley shows how the "New Science"-the revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and biology that are overturning centuries-old models of science-provides powerful insights for transforming how we design, lead, and manage organizations. Our understanding of the universe is being radically altered by the "New Science"-the revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and evolutionary biology that are overturning the models of science that have dominated for centuries.
