This eye-opening book is the perfect way for new leaders to fill that gap in professional development¿and help their organization meet the needs of children and families. Bringing to book form the principles and practices behind the renowned Georgetown University Leadership Development Program, this essential resource dispels the myths about good leadership and sheds light on the values and actions that steer an individual and an organization toward success. Mental health administrators and program developers will: learn about five effective leadership styles; master the shift between multiple leadership functions; develop specific skills associated with good leadership; build productive, collaborative relationships; and more.

No matter where readers are on their leadership journey, this book will help them master the skills they need to guide and motivate staff, bring about positive systems change, and ensure the best outcomes for children and families.
