This book brings key findings to practice from a research study conducted to determine the most important characteristics of high quality leadership development programs. The author spoke with program developers, educators and participants from four programs to uncover what mattered most - what made the leadership programs most effective. From the study findings, the Grounded Theory Model of High Quality Leadership Programs was developed to outline the most important characteristics of effective programs that positively contribute to students' learning and leadership development.

Charts lay out the actions you can take and what types of outcomes these actions produce. The pieces of the model can be used as a checklist for things you could be doing in your program -- as catalysts for innovation. This practical knowledge can assist you, whether you are a program developer or teacher, in creating and administering high-quality leadership programs that enhance the learning and leadership development of your program participants.

Review:

"Root Down and Branch Out: Best Practices for Leadership Development Programs" is at the cutting edge of collegiate leadership program research and development. As an Assistant Professor of Leadership & Organizational Studies and former academic coordinator for a leadership studies program at a very large public university I can tell you that Dr. Eich's book ranks up there with the best. Few resources are as comprehensive, practical, and easy to read and apply as Root Down. -Dr. D. Jenkins
