Life offers each of us opportunities to be a leader. Leadership is not reserved for those who hold a title or a lucrative position-it can be demonstrated by anyone in any capacity in which they serve. We need leadership in our homes, our churches, our jobs, and everywhere in between.

Stanfield demonstrates that, contrary to popular belief, leadership is not about the things you do once you get to the top, but rather the things you do before you get there. It is about leading in everything you do in life. Defining Effective Leadership: Leading Wherever You Are compels the reader to look beyond conventional methods and understand that true leadership is about serving others.

This book represents a most robust look at the study of leadership while representing multiple disciplines in a quest to find agreement about leadership and theory. Russ Volckmann, International Leadership Review In this compelling book, top scholars from diverse fields describe the progress they have made in developing a general theory of leadership. Led by James MacGregor Burns, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the classic Leadership (1978), they tell the story of this intellectual venture and the conclusions and questions that arose from it. The early chapters describe how, in order to discuss an integrative theory, the group first wrestled with the nature of theory as well as basic aspects of the human condition that make leadership necessary and possible. They then tackle topics such as: the many faces of power woven into the leadership fabric; crucial elements of group dynamics and the leader follower relationship; ethical issues lying at the heart of leadership; constructivist perspectives on leadership, causality, and social change; and the historical and cultural contexts that influence and are influenced by leadership. The book concludes with a commentary by Joanne Ciulla and an Afterword by James MacGregor Burns. The contributors thorough coverage of leadership, as well as their approach to this unique undertaking, will be of great interest to leaders, students and scholars of leadership.
