The Book also includes questionnaires and surveys that measure everything from the leadership behaviors of individual trainees to organizational factors that influence or determine the way leadership will be exercised. Finally, the book contains insightful and informative articles that lay the educational foundation for the study of leadership as a teachable skill. The articles, experiential learning exercises, and questionnaires were specially selected as the best and most useful in the thirty-year History of the Pfeiffer Annuals.

Excerpts from Inner Flap (Front)

Good leaders are vital to the success of any organization. Effective leadership from the CEO, middle managers, frontline supervisors, and team leaders can make the difference between a well-motivated workforce prepared to meet any challenge and a group of dispirited employees destined for failure. Good training builds good leaders. And there is no more powerful form of training than experiential learning. Pfeiffer's Classic Activities for Developing Leaders is a hands-on resource that offers twenty experiential learning activities, complete and ready to use in training sessions. These proven activities are designed to teach a wide variety of leadership skills to executives, managers, and supervisors. The book also includes questionnaires and surveys that measure everything from the leadership behaviors of individual trainees to organizational factors that influence or determine the way leadership will be exercised. Finally, the book contains insightful and informative articles that lay the educational foundation for the study of leadership as a teachable skill.
