The future success of our universities depends on academics' capacity to respond energetically to change. To help academics face new and uncertain demands, we need an entirely different approach to their management and leadership. This book shows academic leaders how to increase resource productivity and enhance teaching quality. It also demonstrates how leaders can help their staff through momentous change without compromising professional standards. Drawing on ideas from the world of business leadership as well as research into what makes academics committed and productive, Learning to Lead in Higher Education provides heads of departments and course leaders with practical tools they can use to improve their management and leadership skills. It shows academic and university leaders at all levels how they can turn adversity into prosperity.
This is a book about leadership for college and university administrators, written by a professor of higher education who has also had a long administrative career. As Dr. Davis explains in the preface, leadership has been recognized recently as an activity that not only is associated with formal leadership roles, but also can bubble up in various places within the organization. Given that understanding, the author has written this book for a broadly defined audience of higher education administrators, including presidents, provosts, deans, and department chairs, as well as myriad administrators who work in student affairs, athletics, finance, admissions, funded research, development, and alumni relations, for example. The book also addresses the needs of those who facilitate leadership workshops, serve as mentors to potential leaders, and teach courses on higher education leadership and administration. While presenting all sides of key issues, the author calls for the reader to define his or her own position through a series of provocative questions in "Reflection" sections scattered throughout each chapter. Thus the book invites interaction and teaches administrators not what to think about leadership, but how to think about it. A directory of selected resources helps readers expand their learning through professional associations; key journals, magazines, and newspapers; and useful Web sites dedicated to postsecondary education. Notes at the end of each of the ten chapters list critical texts for further reading on the book's concepts, theories, and models. Valuable summaries of the best works on leadership and administration drawn from both higher education and business literature make this book an indispensable desk reference for the busy administrator. It may also soon be regarded as the best text available for leadership training for college and university administrators.
