Leadership by design: strengthening integrity in higher education
This book identifies the ideals that are essential to successful leadership in colleges and universities. It explains how values shape a leader's realities and shows how leadership is a conceptual, moral, and performing art form: built on ideas and ideals, as well as a solid philosophical and empirical foundation, and perfected in practice.As embarrassing reports of misconduct and wrongdoing in the highest offices of our universities and colleges continue to circulate, it is important to step back and ask a couple of important questions. What should leaders stand for? And what are the ideals that will enable them to design climates that nurture the potential of colleagues, students, and other constituents?Arguing that effective leadership is as much a test of character as a test of intellect, E. Grady Bogue identifies those ideals that are essential to successful leadership performance in colleges and universities. He explains how leadership values construct a leader's realities and he shows how leadership is a conceptual, moral, and performing art form--built on ideas and ideals, based in a solid philosophical and empirical foundation, and perfected in practice.Bogue also examines the literature on leadership effectiveness and offers illustrations from diverse settings, along with anecdotes from his personal experience that show how knowledge, values, and skill must be integrated in the effective leader. These examples, reflecting on honor, dignity, candor, compassion, courage, and other leadership qualities provide a rich source of ideas for the development and improvement of leadership in higher education.
