Executive Policy Governance: A leadership model for local government
Leadership is a scarce and very valuable commodity that is absolutely critical to the success or failure of organizations, and is often more known by its absence than its presence. Leaders are influencers: they can see a target often more clearly and more quickly than others and they have the presence necessary to cause others to move in that desired direction.
This book is intended to be useful to anyone involved in an elected capacity at the local level. It offers a valuable model for any system based on democratic principles, including voting rights, equity, fairness, respect for the rule of law, and a willingness to adhere to democratically determined decisions.
