From Command to Community

Cynthia Gibson and Nick Longo’s 2011 book From Command to Community: A New Approach to Leadership Education in Colleges and Universities argues for a leadership approach in higher education institutions based on collaboration, community problem solving, transparency, authenticity and results-orientation.Diverse essays in the book create a new definition of leadership education based in colleges and universities. The essays in this volume address the idea of leadership education through civic engagement. They delineate a new approach to leadership education reflecting important cultural trends driven by technology, globalization, and demographic shifts; look at some of the best leadership education programs nationwide; and offer “next steps” on how to transform higher education more broadly.
