Professionalizing Leadership

By way of explaining why no blog for the past couple of weeks, there is this. Page proofs. I’ve been reviewing the page proofs of my forthcoming book, titled as above – Professionalizing Leadership. It will be published by Oxford University Press on or about February 1st.

This is from the Introduction, titled “Learning Leading – Lame Undertaking.”

Professionalizing Leadership looks at a leadership culture that is as widespread as deeply entrenched. It looks at an industry that is enormously profitable but entirely unregulated. It looks at a pedagogical practice that falls stunningly short of any imagined ideal. And it looks at what can be done to bestow on leaders a semblance of the gravitas that we associate with professionals.
