Summary "The purpose of this book is to elucidate the typical challenges that deans may encounter so they are prepared to succeed when difficulties arise. Each chapter of this book offers information, observations, and examples that give insight into the dean's role. Attention is given to the review of personal attributes, sound habits, essential understandings, and basic skills that are observed in successful deans and, more broadly, in successful leaders. The book's clear and concise organization, and the enormous amount of practical information conveyed, will help deans and future deans turn challenges into successful careers."--BOOK JACKET
