(L.J. Cumbo CHANCE)

About the Author

Dr. Gill Robinson Hickman is professor emerita in the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond. An inaugural faculty member of the Jepson School, she participated in its institution building and course development and has held positions as dean, professor of Public Administration, and Human Resource director. She has published several books and numerous articles/book chapters in the field of leadership studies. Her experience has led to invitations as presenter at the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP), Shanghai, China; the Leadership in Central Europe Conference at Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic; and a panel member at international conferences in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Guadalajara, Mexico, and Canada. She was a faculty presenter at the prestigious Salzburg Seminar in Salzburg, Austria and at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa where she presented a conceptual framework for leadership and transformation for regional governments in South Africa.

More About the Author

Dr. Hickman's career has involved both administrative and academic appointments. Her expertise is in management, with an underpinning of organizational behavior and human resource management. As a founding member of the faculty of the Jepson School, Dr. Hickman participated in the early structuring and formation of the program, a role for which her background as dean in the School of Health at California State University, acting associate dean in the School of Community and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University, and professor of public administration had prepared her.

In the classroom, she focuses on leading change, leadership in organizations and leadership in a diverse society. Her most recent book is Leading Change in Multiple Contexts: Concepts and Practices in Organizational, Community, Political, Social, and Global Change Settings.

She is engaged in research in several areas including leadership in socially active businesses, invisible leadership and leadership during personal crisis. Her research in the business sector focuses on companies that are meeting the challenge of balancing change, profitability and social action, and, therefore, she is able to help practitioners and scholars learn more about how "leadership" functions in this business context.

In the course of studying how individuals in leadership roles handle personal crisis, Dr. Hickman has interviewed government and business leaders about crises ranging from work-family conflicts to personal illness and the death of a loved one.

She has worked on projects for regional governments in South Africa at the University of the Western Cape, taught at the prestigious Salzburg Seminar in Austria and was a founding partner in a small California retail business. As a consultant in the public and private sector, Dr. Hickman is sought after for her work in organizational leadership and change as well as transforming leadership and human resources management.

She is a board member of the International Leadership Association and member of several other professional, scholarly and community organizations. Dr. Hickman is the recipient of several awards including the University of Richmond Distinguished Educator Award.

Here we are moving into the 21st century and organizations are changing. Organizations change in respect to power and influence, shared leadership, innovation, adaptatibility, inclusion, and social responsibility. This book explores the organizational environment towards new responsibilities of organizational leadership. I enjoyed the easy read, the concepts were explained openly, and the book was an excellent guide through my course of study in organizational leadership. I recommend this book highly for the doctoral level student.

Great collection of authors with multidimensional perceptions of Leadership. A must read for practitioners and learners in leadership.

Seem like Hickman aimed as hallmark of ingenuity in the field of "contemporary leadership."
