About the Author:

Robert Palestini is graduate dean emeritus and professor of education at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and founding executive director of the Educational Leadership Institute and Center for Catholic Urban Education at Saint Joseph's University. He has spent almost fifty years in various leadership positions and has written more than ten books on various aspects of leadership.

Review:

Palestini has been my colleague at Saint Joseph's University for over twenty years, and I can attest to the validity of the leadership strategies he espouses in this latest book profiling the effective leadeship behavior of ten outstanding professional baseball managers. Having served as manager of an American Legion team and having personal relationships with such baseball luminaries as Bill Giles, part owner and chairman of the Philadelphia Phillies, and Jerry Hunsicker, vice president of the Tampa Bay Rays and former general manager of the Houston Astros, I have observed firsthand how the leadership theories in Palestini's book can be placed into effective practice. The leadership strategies that he suggests will be of value to leaders and aspiring leaders in all walks of life. (John Lord, professor of marketing and dean emeritus at Saint Joseph's University)

Leadership skills are vital to success in all walks of life. Palestini captures this theory and puts it into practice in his new book. Whether you're a teacher, coach, manager, or someone striving for success, this book will start you thinking. (Thomas Wynne, former president/COO, LCI int'l)

Palestini continues to excite educational leaders with his insightful approaches to educational leadership that help close the gap between theory and practice. His third book in his currrent leadership series demonstrates how the use of situational leadership theory by ten successful baseball managers has contributed to their effectiveness. These same leadership principles can be applied to anyone's leadership behavior whether it's as a parent, a school principal, or a business person. As a longtime colleague of Palestini's, I have seen these principles exemplified in his own leadership style. This book is sure to be a valuable addition to any leader's library! (Terrance L. Furin)

Palestini's practical approach to leadeship, based on behavioral profiles of baseball managers, provides valuable insights for leaders in all walks of life. Palestini offers important practical lessons in leadership that he has observed in others and practiced himself as the coach and teacher I personally learned from in high school. (H. Edward Hanway, president and CEO, CIGNA)
