A seasoned mentor will guide you through the early stages of your development as a leader. For those of you who don’t have that mentor, there’s Innovating Leadership for the Emerging Leader. Guided by this book, you’ll develop your understanding, testing, and learning about your own leadership.

This workbook helps you ask key questions of yourself as you emerge into leadership roles. Be patient as you grow. Take notes and be grateful for both good and mediocre leaders. The good ones model the way. The bad ones remind us what not to do. This workbook will help shape you into an “excellent” leader.

    I am searching for textbooks for a new Graduate level course in our University’s new major Master of Science in Organizational Leadership. My course is titled “Leadership in Innovative Organizational Culture.” The book, “Innovative Leadership Workbook for Emerging Leaders and Managers” looks interesting. Can I obtain a copy for review?
