Leadership in academic institutions

Effah, Paul

This book discusses the general principles of leadership within a broad theoretical framework and relates them to practical situations within the academic environment.  As strong leadership and business skills are increasingly becoming important attributes of leaders and senior managers of tertiary education institutions, a structured and systematic leadership training will assume greater importance and become a permanent feature of the academic landscape.  The emphasis on leadership in this book is to underscore the importance of creativity, vision and innovation in meeting the challenges that the twenty-first century holds for tertiary education institutions.  The author discusses the various approaches to leadership and its challenges in the academic environment.  The manual concludes with suggestions of ways to alleviate leadership challenges.
