Bob Palestini has been a former dean of graduate studies and a professor
of education for twenty years at my alma mater, Saint Joseph’s
University in Philadelphia. His expertise and research interest is educational
leadership. His twelve books on leadership have been outstanding
in their own right but his current three-book series relates his theories
on leadership to basketball, football, and baseball coaching and makes
for a very interesting and intriguing connection.
The topic ‘elite’ may be dealt with either in a few lines, or in many pages.
There is no half way. In fact, it encompasses issues which are crucial to
the social sciences, such as the relation between the distribution of wealth,
prestige and power; the exercise of power and the composition of the group
that holds it. The list is extensive.
The first two steps for a formal survey process are defining the survey objectives
and determining who will be sampled. The participants are pre-selected and, thus, the
response rate and the accuracy are expected to be high. There are 13 total questions
included on the survey. For several of the questions, respondents are asked to state
whether they agree or disagree with a particular statement; other questions are designed
to solicit input with regard to identifying key leadership skills. The following describes
the questions asked in the survey and includes an analysis of the data. ...
Pick up any textbook that focuses on human history and you will most
probably begin to read a critical assessment of the leaders of the period
under study. It is almost axiomatic that history is made by leaders, and in
order for later generations to understand what happened to create the
foundations for their social, psychological, and physical existence they must
understand what the individuals charged with the responsibility for making
choices on behalf of large segments of humanity did or did not do.
The wonder of the story is explained by its extraordinary nature. Many men in private life have lost fortune
and fame for the love of woman. Kings have incurred the odium of their people, and have cared nothing for it
in comparison with the joys of sense that come from the lingering caresses and clinging kisses.
Our Leadership IQ study of 20,000 new hires (reported in Fortune and Forbes) found
that the number one reason why new hires fail is that they are not coachable. A high
performance workplace is dependent upon employees that have the ability to accept and
implement feedback from bosses, colleagues, customers and other key players. There is
no point in investing time and energy in people who are not going to positively respond.
Doing so is a time consuming and exhausting exercise in futility.
The Graziadio School focuses on the professional and personal development
of business professionals, managers, and senior executives. The school’s
programs prepare individuals for leadership positions in a wide variety of
industrial, educational, nonprofit, and other service organizations. The school
views leadership as being applicable at all levels of the organization that
require management and stewardship of resources toward the accomplishment
of stated objectives.
Programs are organized from an integrated, interdisciplinary perspective.
To begin building the regional partnership during this first phase, economic development professionals guide
the leadership team through an exercise of mapping a region’s assets. Individual leaders rarely have the
complete grasp of all the different economic development assets within a region. Mapping these assets—
literally marking them on a wall-sized map of the region—can help leaders see the future in a new way.
Mapping regional assets goes beyond compiling lists of economic development assets.
The Banco de España, in coordination with the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness,
assumed the leadership of the exercise and hired independent international specialists for
the analysis of potential capital needs under a highly stressed macroeconomic scenario
The 14 biggest Spanish banking groups (once the integration processes currently under
way were taken into account) participated in this exercise, accounting for around 90% of
the Spanish banking system's assets.
Some of the poorest countries have significantly reduced
maternal and newborn mortality and improved women’s and
children’s health. Innovative approaches can achieve even more,
eliminating barriers to health and producing better outcomes.
These approaches need to be applied to all activities:
leadership, financing (including incentives to achieve better
performance and results), tools and interventions, service
delivery, monitoring and evaluation.
