Public Leadership


Editor: Justin A. Ramírez

Series: Social Issues, Justice and Status

In studying public leadership we are interested in the use of the voice to motivate, inspire, and organize public action. The focus is the leadership that stimulates coordinated response to the problems that the public accepts. Public leadership pulls a group of people (a society) together and coordinates their response to their world. This book presents topical research in the study of public leadership, including police organization and leadership; brand leadership in a public sector context; leadership compensation in subsidiaries; exploring the public leadership performance of faith-based healthcare organization; and educational leadership.
