Person-Centered Leadership for Nonprofit Organizations
Management that Works in High Pressure Systems


December 2000 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

This work presents a case study of the leadership philosophy and day-to-day operations of an award-winning social service organization that targets youth and their families while successfully using person-centered strategies as the management model.

The groundbreaking core of the book shows how this participatory management strategy, Person-Centered Leadership, can be incorporated with great success into high-stress non-profit organizations.

The book describes a unique approach to participatory management that shows much promise of working well within individualist-oriented countries such as the US or the UK. It demonstrates how organizational leaders can develop individuality at the same time that team building is emphasized.
