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



February 2001 | 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-centred strategies as the management model.

The groundbreaking core of the book shows how this participatory management strategy, Person-Centred 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 teambuilding is emphasized.
