Most leaders of colleges and universities will take office with accompanying media celebration of their past records and future promise. Each will exit with a legacy. In Leadership Legacy Moments the author reflects upon the ideas, skills, and values that are essential to effective leadership so that a leader leaves behind a student body with great promise, a set of accomplishments achieved in concert with faculty and staff, and an institutional culture that inspires curiosity, courage, and compassion. Brogue illustrates how ideas and values are linked in the stewardship of one of our nation's premier organizational enterprises. The book is about constructing a leadership legacy that is both effective and ethical.
