"A book that every academic leader should read and put into practice." —Kim Cameron, associate dean of executive education, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan Praise for Positive Academic Leadership " Buller has produced a book that every academic leader should read and put into practice. Positive Academic Leadership pulls together an amazing array of scientific findings and practical guidelines that will be invaluable for academic leaders looking to improve themselves and their institutions." — Kim Cameron, associate dean, William Russell Professor of Management and Organizations, Ross School of Business; professor of higher education, School of Education, University of Michigan " If I had a magic wand and could make one wish for all of higher education, it would be that we had better institutional leadership. Whether one is a chair, dean, provost, president, or on the Board of Trustees, this book can make a world of difference in your ability to provide that leadership!" — L. Dee Fink, author, Creating Significant Learning Experiences; former president, Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education " Buller's book brings hope for leadership in higher education by emphasizing the importance of a positive approach that empowers and inspires others. Positive Academic Leadership has the potential to transform higher education for the benefit of students, faculty, and ultimately our communities and our world." — Kina S. Mallard, provost and vice president of academic affairs, Carson-Newman University " Academic leaders who find themselves engulfed in negative thinking and considering only damage control scenarios for pressing issues will want to read this book. Employing what Jeffrey Buller calls 'positive academic leadership' is, I believe, essential to transforming feelings of despair into constructive leadership." — Mary Lou Higgerson, vice president for academic affairs, emerita, Baldwin Wallace University " I can't recall reading any book on leadership that is more applicable to the work of faculty development. Every academic leader—faculty member, chair, dean, or campus administrator—will benefit from Jeffrey Buller's evidence-based model and practices of positive academic leadership." — Mary Deane Sorcinelli, associate provost for faculty development, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Lead small groups through astounding growth with principles from the best-selling books How People Grow and Boundaries.No matter what need brings a group of people together—from marriage enrichment to divorce recovery, from grief recovery to spiritual formation—members are part of a small group because they want to grow. This book by psychologists Henry Cloud and John Townsend provides small-group leaders with valuable guidance and information on how they can help their groups to grow spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. With insights from their best-selling book How People Grow, Cloud and Townsend show how God’s plan for growth is made up of three key elements: grace plus truth plus time. When groups embrace those elements, they find God’s grace and forgiveness and learn how to handle their imperfections without shame as they model God’s love and support to one another.In addition to describing what makes small groups work, Leading Small Groups That Help People Grow explains the roles and responsibilities of both leaders and group members. Employing tenets from the book How People Grow, this book equips leaders to understand the ins and outs of how to promote growth, and using principles from their best-selling book Boundaries, they show how to identify and find solutions for common problems such as boredom, noncompliance, passivity, aggression, narcissism, spiritualization, over-neediness, over-giving, and nonstop talking.

From one of the world's preeminent political historians, a magisterial study of political leadership around the world from the advent of parliamentary democracy to the age of Obama. All too frequently, leadership is reduced to a simple dichotomy: the strong versus the weak. Yet, there are myriad ways to exercise effective political leadership--as well as different ways to fail. We blame our leaders for economic downfalls and praise them for vital social reforms, but rarely do we question what makes some leaders successful while others falter. In this magisterial and wide-ranging survey of political leadership over the past hundred years, renowned Oxford politics professor Archie Brown challenges the widespread belief that strong leaders--meaning those who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process--are the most successful and admirable. In reality, only a minority of political leaders will truly make a lasting difference. Though we tend to dismiss more collegial styles of leadership as weak, it is often the most cooperative leaders who have the greatest impact. Drawing on extensive research and decades of political analysis and experience, Brown illuminates the achievements, failures and foibles of a broad array of twentieth century politicians. Whether speaking of redefining leaders like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Margaret Thatcher, who expanded the limits of what was politically possible during their time in power, or the even rarer transformational leaders who played a decisive role in bringing about systemic change--Charles de Gaulle, Mikhail Gorbachev and Nelson Mandela, among them--Brown challenges our commonly held beliefs about political efficacy and strength. Overturning many of our assumptions about the twentieth century's most important figures, Brown's conclusions are both original and enlightening. The Myth of the Strong Leader compels us to reassess the leaders who have shaped our world - and to reconsider how we should choose and evaluate those who will lead us into the future.

Climate change poses one of the biggest challenges facing humankind. The European Union (EU) has developed into a leader in international climate change politics although it was originally set up as a ‘leaderless Europe’ in which decision-making powers are spread amongst EU institutional, member state and societal actors. The central aim of this book, which is written by leading experts in the field, is to explain what kind of leadership has been offered by EU institutional, member state and societal actors. Although leadership is the overarching theme of the book, all chapters also address ecological modernisation, policy instruments, and multi-level governance as additional main themes. The book chapters focus on the Commission, European Parliament, European Council and Council of Ministers as well as member states (Britain, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain) and societal actors (businesses and environmental NGOs). Additional chapters analyse the EU as a global actor and the climate change policies of America and China and how they have responded to the EU’s ambitions. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of environmental politics, EU politics, comparative politics and international relations as well as to practitioners who deal with EU and/or climate change issues.
