Publisher Comments:

"My students have been searching for a leadership book that they don?t have to translate to their experiences. At last, here is a book that integrates cutting edge ideas of leadership with examples and stories from college students." ?Kathleen E. Allen, vice president for student development, College of Saint Benedict

"As a long-time teacher of leadership courses, I know that my students will resonate with Exploring Leadership. The book presents a well-developed analysis of both the ?how? and the ?why? of leadership as a relational process and also challenges student readers to think about how they might practice leadership throughout their lives." ?Sara A. Boatman, vice president for student affairs, Nebraska Wesleyan University

"We?ve been waiting for Exploring Leadership for a long time. This is a book that can be used with a broad spectrum of students involved in positional as well as relational leadership. Exploring Leadership has finally filled the gap that has been evident for years?a book that stimulates students to look seriously at themselves and at the complexities and opportunities of leadership." ?Dennis C. Roberts, assistant vice president for student affairs, Miami University

"What sets this book apart is its firm grounding in ethics and its practical application for young adults interested in making a difference. The focused questions at the end of each chapter are outstanding for thoughtful discussion and reflection." ?Alice Faron, program director, LeaderShape, Inc.

Exploring Leadership provides a unique view of leadership as a participatory process, and helps students and young adults to develop their own potential for leadership in the organizations, groups, and communities of an increasingly diverse and complex world.

My students have been searching for a leadership book that they don't have to translate to their experiences. At last, here is a book that integrates cutting edge ideas of leadership with examples and stories from college students.

Kathleen E. Allen, vice president for student development, College of Saint Benedict

It helps students assess their own potential for leadership, gives them a concise grounding in major leadership concepts and theories, and takes them through a contemporary leadership approach that equips them for the challenges of providing leadership in groups, communities, and organizations.

Synopsis:

This is the thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the best-selling book Exploring Leadership.The book is designed to help college students understand that they are capable of being effective leaders and to guide them in developing their leadership potential. Exploring Leadershipincorporates new insights and material developed in the course of the authors’ work in the field. The second edition contains expanded and new chapters and also includes the relational leadership model, uses a more global context and examples that relate to a wide variety of disciplines, contains a new section which emphasizes ways to work to accomplish change, and concludes with concrete strategies for activism.

Absolutely By Far the WORST BOOK i have EVER laid my eyes on. There is no better example of authors writing sentences so complicated, and so complex that you need to read them five times before understanding them. Almost all sentences are restated above, and most dont even mean anything. This is a bs book that you probably need for a bs class. I cannot honestly say anything good about it.
