This book includes contributions from top scholars who outline the best leadership practices for the benefit of the practicing leader. Each chapter focuses on a specific area of leadership practice and ends with a set of "take away" best practices in each area—an executive summary in reverse—that will serve as a quick reference for those who might want to peruse chapters, but still extract the best practices, as well as a summary for those who thoroughly read each chapter.
"Jay Alden Conger and Ronald Riggio have brought together a
galaxy of sophisticated yet practical experts on leadership,
stressing both the complexity and indispensability of both
transactional and transforming leadership, with the blessing of the
pioneering student of leadership, Bernie Bass."
—James MacGregor Burns, professor emeritus, Willams College, and Pulitzer Prize winner
