Leadership is for everyone. Whether you are a professor, a student, a manager, or an employee, Leadership Blueprints shows that leadership is about bringing “talk into action.” For those looking to create a full curriculum for leadership at a school or workplace, Hall provides a full description of what she and her colleagues have done at Dartmouth College’s Rockefeller Center. By interweaving personal stories, reactions of students who participated in these programs, alumni reflections and strong theoretical foundations, Sadhana Hall brings together many dimensions of how leadership can be taught and lived out daily. This book can either be used whole or in part. For those who can only dedicate an hour of a staff meeting to the topic, they too can use the detailed individual exercises that are well described and can adapt them to meet individual circumstances. If you are looking for a way to foster leadership that is adaptable, practical, and filled with warmth and good humor, then this is the book for you!
