By Stephen J Carroll and Patrick C Flood.

An increasingly popular and effective learning process is to use the arts to illustrate the links between leadership, persuasive skill, and values.

In The Persuasive Leader, the authors use their unconventional material to explore themes such as moral leadership, toxic leadership, learning from failures, distributed leadership, and the leader as a counselor. Featuring examples of persuasive leaders and persuasive leadership principles from the performing arts, fine arts, literature, philosophical writings, and biography, this unique book is ideal for executives, organizational leaders, consultants, educators, and MBA students.
