Foreword by Dr Terrence Deal In a highly readable, conversational tone, and using numerous real-life examples, the authors explain what it means to be a visionary, inspiring, and truly effective leader - guiding the reader through a process of self-assessment and professional development. They help the reader to take responsibility for his or her own personal/professional development through "reflection, activities, and exercises." In particular, the book is a response to those participants in the authors' leadership seminars who want practical ideas for improving their leadership. Brubaker and Coble have take each concept and make it come alive for the practising leader as a perpetual learner. They provide a range of instructional and learning materials which can be used as a personal guide to the reader, and as tools for training.
