Praise for the First Edition
"My students have been searching for a leadership book that they don't have to translate to their experiences. At last, here is a book that integrates cutting-edge ideas of leadership with examples and stories from college students."
—Kathleen E. Allen, senior fellow, Academy of Leadership at the University of Maryland
"As a long-time teacher of leadership courses, I know that my students will resonate with Exploring Leadership. The book presents a well-developed analysis of both the 'how' and the 'why' of leadership as a relational process and also challenges student readers to think about how they might practice leadership throughout their lives."
—Sara A. Boatman, vice president for student affairs, Nebraska Wesleyan University
