Leaders in the Labyrinth sheds light on how presidents conduct the influence and power of their office, especially in the use of their pulpits, how they navigate issues of political correctness, and how they hold the center of the university together, in contentious times and against competing ideological forces. Nelson has formulated a comprehensive image of the tenor, talents, and temperaments essential for todayOs presidency, for those who aspire to assume leadership in the future and for those who select the leaders of our colleges and universities.

Despite real progress, women remain rare enough in elite positions of power that their presence still evokes a sense of wonder. In Through the Labyrinth, Alice Eagly and Linda Carli examine why women's paths to power remain difficult to traverse. First, Eagly and Carli prove that the glass ceiling is no longer a useful metaphor and offer seven reasons why. They propose the labyrinth as a better image and explain how to navigate through it. This important and practical book addresses such critical questions as: How far have women actually come as leaders? Do stereotypes and prejudices still limit women's opportunities? Do people resist women's leadership more than men's? And, do organisations create obstacles to women who would be leaders?This book's rich analysis is founded on scientific research from psychology, economics, sociology, political science, and management. The authors ground their conclusions in that research and invoke a wealth of engaging anecdotes and personal accounts to illustrate the practical principles that emerge. With excellent leadership in short supply, no group, organisation, or nation can afford to restrict women's access to leadership roles. This book evaluates whether such restrictions are present and, when they are, what we can do to eliminate them.

Abstract : Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the most common general metaphors for women's leadership: the glass ceiling, sticky floor and the labyrinth. The authors discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these metaphors for characterizing women's current situation as leaders. Design/methodology/approach: In addition to reviewing the literature on the status of women leaders, the authors also discuss recent research on the power of metaphor to illustrate concepts and influence social judgments. Findings: The authors conclude that the labyrinth is the most useful metaphor for women leaders, because although there has been slow steady improvement in women's access to leadership, women continue to face challenges that men do not face: gender stereotypes that depict women as unsuited to leadership, discrimination in pay and promotion, lack of access to powerful mentors and networks and greater responsibility for childcare and other domestic responsibilities. Practical implications: Although the glass ceiling metaphor implies that women face obstacles once they have risen to very high levels of leadership and the sticky floor metaphor implies that women are prevented from any advancement beyond entry level, the labyrinth reflects the myriad obstacles that women face throughout their careers. Originality/value: The labyrinth metaphor not only acknowledges these challenges but also suggests that women can advance to very high levels of leadership.

Sein Denkmal steht in fast jeder Stadt Lateinamerikas. Ein Staat, eine Währung, Straßen und Plätze sind nach ihm benannt. Simón Bolívar, der General und Held des Unabhängigkeitskrieges der südamerikanischen Kolonien gegen die spanische Krone, wird noch heute als der Libertador, der Befreier, verehrt. Der Bürgerssohn aus Caracas mit einem Schuß Mulattenblut in den Adern, der sich in Rom, Paris, London auskannte und in den Salons seiner Zeit glänzte, der Tausende von Büchern las, überquerte mehrfach die Anden und ritt mit seinen Soldaten Tausende von Meilen durch den Kontinent, um seine Vision von einem befreiten und vereinigten Südamerika zu verwirklichen. Er schrieb unermüdlich Briefe, persönliche und politische, er konnte ebenso unnachahmlich fechten wie tanzen und war ein unwiderstehlicher Bewunderer schöner Frauen. Über 10 Jahre erlebte er als Präsident des von ihm geschaffenen Staates Kolumbien die Höhen des Ruhms, aber auch die Niederungen korrumpierender Macht und die Angriffe seiner Gegner. 1830 erklärte Bolívar in Santa Fe de Bogota seinen Rücktritt. »Wer sich einer Revolution verschreibt, pflügt das Meer«, sagte er bitter am Ende seines Lebens, als der Traum von der Einheit zerstoben war und er schwerkrank mit wenigen Getreuen den Magdalena-Strom hinab zur Karibik fuhr, um möglicherweise ins Exil zu gehen. Gabriel García Márquez beschreibt in seinem Roman diese letzte Reise des 47jährigen Bolívar. In Rückblenden läßt er noch einmal den glorreichen Libertador auftreten, holt aber auch den General vom Denkmalssockel herunter und zeigt in einem spannungsreichen Geflecht historischer Ereignisse den Menschen in seinem körperlichen und seelischen Verfall, im Labyrinth seiner Leiden und verlorenen Träume.

Transforming Pastors presents fifty-two Bible-immersed, field-tested, discussion-welcoming, one-page handouts that offer spiritual guidance through the labyrinth of leadership. This manual draws attention to abiding and weighty themes for both emerging and seasoned leaders. Transforming Pastors escorts you through the twists and turns of leadership to the center of ministry and returns you to a world that God so loves. There are no shortcuts. Stay on the ordained path with discipline and patience and you will experience amazing grace every step of the way. Each topic in this leadership manual can be considered individually or, better yet, discussed in a small group setting (e.g., with a clergy small group, church staff, elder board, missions team, etc.). Either way, be prepared to reflect upon and respond to the path of Transforming Pastors. "The creativity and thoughtfulness of the material compiled in this book has opened new doors to my joy and formation in Christ. Even though I have been in ministry for years, these handouts challenge my thinking and expand my understanding of God." -- Hans Bletterman, Senior Pastor "Pastor Steve Robbins is a pastor's pastor. This manual will help pastors and leadership staff to hear the voice of God--for guidance, instruction, and inspiration." -- Ray Ochoa, Prison Chaplain "I have had the privilege of working through many of these handouts in a monthly meeting of fellow pastors. This is a goldmine of valuable teaching material." -- Tim Walton, Senior Pastor "In powerful and memorable ways these studies portray authentic ministry as a matter of faithfulness and fruitfulness. I've found peace restored and joy nourished in a vision of ministry that flows out of a walk with Christ and my identity in him." -- Mike Woodcock, Senior Pastor

Communicative Understandings of Women's Leadership Development: From Ceilings of Glass to Labyrinth Paths, edited by Elesha L. Ruminski and Annette M. Holba, weaves the disciplines of communication studies, leadership studies, and women's studies to offer theoretical and practical reflection about women's leadership development in academic, organizational, and political contexts. This work claims a space for women's leadership studies and acknowledges the paradigmatic shift from discussing women's leadership using the glass ceiling to what Eagly and Carli (2007) identify as the labyrinth of leadership.
