about

Literature on leadership often fails to include a clear connection between theory and practice. This book details characteristics and behaviors manifested by effective leaders and how their behavior was informed by leadership theory. This book specifically describes the leadership practices of football coaches as a way to illustrate the theory the author expounds, offering the reader examples of leadership behavior in the four leadership frames suggested by Bolman and Deal's situational leadership theory. This self-help book demonstrates how someone can become a very effective leader in both his personal life and his professional life.
Robert Palestini is dean emeritus and professor of education at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Editorial Reviews

Palestini's practical approach to leadership, based on behavioral profiles of football coaches, provides valuable insights for leaders in all walks of life. Palestini offers important, practical lessons in leadership he has observed in others and practiced himself as the coach and teacher I personally learned from at Cardinal O'Hara High School.
