Australian Leadership Reader by Helen Sykes

Book Description

Of interest to ages 15 years and up and especially appropriate for use in secondary and undergraduate studies, this unique book does not try to define leadership, but instead encourages the reader to fulfill that task themselves through a series of short essays on the personal and professional life of some contemporary Australians recognised nationally as aspiring leaders in their fields. A brief overview on the concept of leadership, plus a short series of questions about leadership and coping, provides a framework for individual study or group discussion. This book presents six engagingly written leadership profiles.
