The Hidden Leader
Leadership Lessons on the Potential Within

Foreword by Terrence Deal



December 2004 | 248 pages | Corwin
"As a former practitioner, I value practical ideas that work. This book captures the essence of how leaders must look inside themselves and then act on the courage of their convictions to stay the course."
Jerry Patterson, Professor of Leadership Studies
University of Alabama at Birmingham

"The personal anecdotes and self assessments will prepare you for future challenges in a leadership role. If leadership is a journey, this book will assist your first steps."
David Mosrie, Chief Executive Officer
Florida Association of District School Superintendents

"Today's schools certainly require competent leaders, and Brubaker and Coble's ideas about competence are evocative of leadership abilities and skills necessary to lead organizations in ways that contribute to their viability and growth."
Linton Deck, Chair, Department of Educational Leadership
State University of West Georgia

"This work is another example of Brubaker and Coble's insight. It will be of tremendous benefit to all who want to expand their understanding of their own leadership power."
Dick Maxwell, Executive Director
Buckeye Association of School Administrators

Become the leader you were meant to be!

The best leaders are visionaries-individuals who possess a strong sense of purpose that inspires and motivates others. In The Hidden Leader, Dale L. Brubaker and Larry D. Coble offer practical tools and insights designed to help you access the power of your personal vision and translate it into truly dynamic leadership.

This exciting new guide to becoming an authentic leader is essential for new leaders who wish to be effective from day one, and for seasoned leaders who seek personal and professional revitalization. As you begin the process of self-assessment and take responsibility for your own professional development as a leader, you will discover how you can motivate others in your organization to do the same.

The Hidden Leader includes:

  • Powerful essays about highly successful leaders, designed to stimulate thought and discussion
  • Practical activities and exercises illustrating techniques to help leaders engage themselves and others
  • Encouraging tips for leading-from large audiences to small meetings
  • Helpful tools to assist the reader in identifying leadership talents in oneself and others
Energize your organization by actualizing the potential within yourself and others!
