Leadership is both an art and a science. It requires one to understand what leadership actually entails before thoughtfully applying the principles that ensure effective positive leadership and creating the conditions that must exist for effective leadership to occur and to be sustained. The leadership dynamics described in Leadership for Change are shaped by a 40‑year career in higher education — the last 16 of which have been spent as President of Western Kentucky University.
