This book, written by a leading scholar in leadership, takes
readers through a very realistic look at what it takes to develop
leadership competencies. Focusing on four major goals, this text:
*provides the reader with a broader and deeper understanding of
what constitutes authentic leadership development; *challenges a
very basic notion that leaders are born versus made; *talks about
the elements that comprise leadership development so readers are
informed to ask the many providers of leadership development the
right questions; and *develops full leadership potential. There are
numerous case examples used throughout the book: high-tech
executives, community leaders, correctional service supervisors,
bank managers in Canada, and platoon commanders in Israel. Each
example is used as a general basis for discussing how people
develop their leadership potential, and as models of training and
evaluation. Leadership Development in Balance: MADE/Born is
intended for graduate or undergraduate students of leadership,
project managers, supervisors, senior executives, school
principles, health care officers, or legislators.
