Leadership Succeeding in the Private, Public, and Not-for-profit Sectors

Ronald R. Sims (Author)
The contributors to this wide-ranging volume seek to define exactly what leadership is or should be, and how to effectively develop it. Guided by an unusual framework that looks at leadership across different sectors and functions, they examine what they view as the major leadership challenges in highly visible for-profit, not-for-profit, and government organizations throughout the world. Their insights will prove equally useful as a general survey of leadership problems for executive policy makers, and for undergraduate and graduate students in the specific fields examined in the text
