"Reframing Academic Leadership provides a compassionateunderstanding of the stresses of serving in a leadership capacityin higher education. It is an excellent book for those alreadyserving as administrators in colleges and universities and forthose who aspire to these positions. It offers insights to thosewho do not fully appreciate why higher education is so hard to'manage' and validation for those entirely familiarwith this world. I recommend it enthusiastically to both audiencesas an excellent blend of theoretical ideas and practicalapplications."
--Judith Block McLaughlin, senior lecturer oneducation, director of the Higher Education Program, andeducational chair for the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents,Harvard Graduate School of Education
"In Reframing Academic Leadership, Bolman and Gallosprovide a refreshing view of leadership essential for those who areassuming presidencies and other important leadership positions inhigher education as well as those who bring more conceptual andpractical experiences. No sooner had I read their work when theirnotion of thinking outside the box and elevating the level ofdiscussion through 'reframing' was most useful inresolving a board-related issue that I was facing in my first yearas president of my institution. This work by Bolman and Gallos is abedside reference for aspiring and current leaders in highereducation not only in the U.S. but also abroad."
--Fernando Leon Garcia, rector, Sistema CETYSUniversidad, Baja California, Mexico
"Too often, higher education administrators understand neitherthe organizations they lead, nor the theoriesthat provide them with knowledge they can apply to thiscomplex task. Bolman and Gallos have written a practical, lucidtext that brings together illustrative vignettes and robustframeworks for diagnosing and managing colleges anduniversities. I recommend this book to new and experienced highereducation administrators who will routinely confrontdifficult people, structures, and cultures in theirworkplaces."
--Christopher Morphew, professor and chair, EducationalPolicy and Leadership Studies, College of Education, University ofIowa
"Reframing Academic Leadership is a gem, filled withexamples from days leaders really have. So much of what the authorsespouse is musical: the book reads like an effective guide forleading a chamber music rehearsal, where one's roleconstantly shifts from star to servant and where multiple answersmay be 'right.' Very cool."
--Peter Witte, dean, Conservatory of Music and Dance,University of Missouri-Kansas City
