Learning to lead : a handbook for postsecondary administrators by James R Davis( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book also addresses the needs of those who facilitate leadership workshops, serve as mentors to potential leaders, and teach courses on higher education leadership and administration. While presenting all sides of key issues, the author calls for the reader to define his or her own position through a series of provocative questions in "Reflection" sections scattered throughout each chapter. Thus the book invites interaction and teaches administrators not what to think about leadership, but how to think about it."--Jacket
