Beschreibung

'Colleges and universities constitute a special type of organization; and their complex mission, dynamics, personnel structures, and values require a distinct set of understandings and skills to lead and manage them well.'
—From the Preface

In Reframing Academic Leadership, Lee G. Bolman and Joan V. Gallos offer higher education leaders a provocative and pragmatic guide for

  • Crafting dynamic institutions where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts
  • Creating campus environments that facilitate creativity and commitment
  • Forging alliances and partnerships in service of the mission
  • Building shared vision and campus cultures that unite and inspire
  • Serving the larger goals of the academy and society

Throughout the book, the authors integrate powerful conceptual frameworks with rich and compelling real-world cases to support academic leaders searching for the best in themselves and in their institutions. The book tackles thorny issues such as building institutional clarity and capacity, managing conflict, coping with difficult people, partnering with the boss, and developing leadership resilience.

Following in the tradition of Bolman and Deal's classic Reframing Organizations, Bolman and Gallos emphasize a pragmatic approach. They tease out the unique challenges and opportunities in academic leadership and provide ideas, tools, and encouragement to help higher education leaders see more clearly, feel more confident, and become more skilled and versatile in handling the vicissitudes of daily life. Reframing Academic Leadership is the resource for those seeking to understand, develop, and manage colleges and universities.

Lee G. Bolman holds the Marion Bloch/Missouri Chair in Leadership at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He is the coauthor of the best-selling books Reframing Organizations and Leading with Soul from Jossey-Bass.

Joan V. Gallos is professor of leadership, University of Missouri Curators' Distinguished Teaching Professor, and director of the Executive MBA program at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She is the coauthor of Teaching Diversity and the editor of Organization Development: A Jossey-Bass Reader and Business Leadership: A Jossey-Bass Reader, Second Edition, all from Jossey-Bass.

Klappentext
Praise for Reframing Academic Leadership

"Reframing Academic Leadership is the most comprehensive book on the topic and an excellent source of knowledge for faculty and managerial leaders in every college and university. An invaluable resource for students of higher education leadership!"
Maureen Sullivan, professor of practice, Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science

"Reframing Academic Leadership provides a compassionate understanding of the stresses of leadership in higher education. It offers insights to those who do not fully appreciate why higher education is so hard to 'manage' and validation for those entirely familiar with this world. I recommend it enthusiastically."
Judith Block McLaughlin, senior lecturer, director of the Higher Education Program, and educational chair for the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Bolman and Gallos provide a refreshing view of leadership essential for those assuming presidencies and other important leadership positions in higher education. This work is a bedside reference for aspiring and current leaders in higher education not only in the U.S. but also abroad."
Fernando Leon Garcia, rector, Sistema CETYS Universidad, Baja California, Mexico

"Bolman and Gallos have written a practical, lucid text that brings together illustrative vignettes and robust frameworks for diagnosing and managing colleges and universities. I recommend it to new and experienced administrators who willroutinely confront difficult people, structures, and cultures in their workplaces."
Christopher Morphew, professor and chair, Educational Policy and Leadership Studies, College of Education, University of Iowa

"Reframing Academic Leadership is filled with real-world examples from leaders. The book reads like a guide for leading a chamber music rehearsal where one's role constantly shifts from star to servant and where multiple answers may be 'right.'"
Peter Witte, dean, Conservatory of Music and Dance, University of Missouri-Kansas City
