This book stresses the human side of leadership as the central feature regarding credibility in the public forums where leadership is really tested. As such, leadership is an art because it involves performance as a form of public theater. No other text on this topic demonstrates so ably how the field has been lopsidedly dominated by science to the detriment of art. Leadership cannot be improved by simply defining it better; it has to be practiced. The real improvement of practice is rooted in the art, i.e., the application. This title features presentation of the idea that leadership is an art, the practice of leadership is not a science but an applied art. Content material is connected to self-discovery and learning how to be critically reflective via journal writing. It explains that connection to films as an excellent method to learn about leading in context. Each chapter has a glossary of critical terms and concepts which help the reader learn and understand important vocabulary.
