Leadership through Story: Diverse Voices in Dialogue offers a goldmine of genuine connections to leadership. Serving as an authentic and relevant resource for teaching about culturally sensitive and morally responsible leadership, the stories invite readers to identify and reveal their assumptions, values, and beliefs about leadership through the power of story. The stories in the book have renewed my passion for using story to teach leadership to future school leaders. It's a great read and I'm going to use it for my next class. -- Dr. William Berube, professor of educational leadership, University of Wyoming
Noonan uses the power of narrative to communicate meaning and value as well as to encourage dialogue....Noonan's work offers us a way to begin the important conversations about things that matter to us all and in so doing help us create true learning communities. -- Zach Kelehear, Dean of the College of Education and Vice President for Instruction and Innovation, Augusta University * School Administrator *
Once in a great while a book captures our attention and imagination in compelling fashion. Leadership through Story: Diverse Voices in Dialogue is such a book. By intermingling life-changing themes from the spiritual, professional, and relational dimensions of our lives, this study of story touches our very being. The authors, Sarah Noonan and her associate Thomas Fish, deepen and expand the concept of leadership by delving into the values and beliefs that underpin the daily decisions of those responsible for drawing members into fruitful community. Leadership is viewed from every perspective-the leaders themselves, the participants, and those with little voice who are incalculably affected by choices made for them. Numerous examples from a variety of cultures and situations enrich our understanding of the wide-ranging and distinctive lessons to be learned from diverse voices. Stories from the lowly and the powerful, the wise and the simple, tell of moral courage, integrity, and innovation as well as of foolish mistakes, self-betrayal, and devastating loss. In all cases, the therapeutic nature of story is brought home in this strikingly beautiful narrative that will hold a lesson for anyone who has ever aspired to leadership. -- Katarina Schuth, endowed chair for the Social Scientific Study of Religion, University of St. Thomas, Minnesota
