From the Back Cover:

What defines a true leader? Is it someone who dutifully follows the latest leadership model or theory accepted by our culture?

InUnderstanding Behaviors for Effective Leadership, Howell and Costley take a unique approach to leadership. By de-emphasizing leadership theories and focusing on the actual behaviors of successful leaders, this book will help you gain a thorough understanding of why effective leaders are known by what they do — not by what they say.

Organized into three parts for easy comprehension, the book provides valuable information on what effective leaders do, how they do it, and when they use key behaviors.

Inside, you'll find:

  • Examples in every chapter that highlight current and historical leaders who exhibit the behaviors and styles presented by the authors.
  • The characteristics of an effective leader, and how they demonstrate these traits to followers.
  • Self-assessment exercises designed to help you comprehend and apply the concepts, as you learn them.
  • Experiential exercises, short cases, illustrations, and figures that work together to help you apply the material to real leadership situations.
