Books

Below are two books I have edited or co-edited.

Advancing Doctoral Leadership Education Through Technology

Together with Laura Hyatt, my newest book is Advancing Doctoral Leadership Education Through Technology (2018). The book focuses on the use of technology in doctoral leadership programs in multiple fields (e.g., business, education, and nursing), but also examines how advances in technology are changing doctoral leadership education as we prepare students for a new landscape of leadership and research. We worked with great authors such as Ron Riggio, Surinder Kahai, Danah Henriksen, William Cain, Stephanie Blackmon, Bruce Winston, Elisabeth Bennett, Margaret Gorman, Cynthia Brown, Delene Volkert, Jackie Bruce, Sara Brierton, Leslie Dinauer, Jennifer Moss Breen, James Martin, Emmanuel Jean-Francois, Peter Zettinig, Katja Einola, and Sean Robinson.

CALE Leadership Handbook

I had the pleasure of serving as editor for the CALE Leadership Handbook (2009) as a project for the Centre for Applied Leadership Excellence. The Handbook was written as an easy-to-read and practical text for developing leaders at all levels of experience. Various well-known authors contributed to the book including Jim Kouzes, Barry Posner, Morgan McCall, Warren Bennis, Richard Lepsinger, and Gary Yukl, amongst others (full details below).

The book served as a valuable resource for our corporate and nonprofit clients and furthered the work of the Centre. Recently the book was converted to the Kindle format and is available on Amazon. I have limited paper copies. The proceeds of the book go to nonprofit organizations in South Africa. The full table of contents is listed below, along with a link to the e-book on Amazon (available on Kindle, paper copies available on request).
