This book examines a relatively unexplored area of leadership research—personal aspects of leadership—by considering the impact of leaders navigating their own personal crises on their relationships with teams, peers, and supervisors. Through original research as well as an integrative review of the literature, Hickman and Knouse focus on the leader-as-person in crisis, including the real-life personal crises and experiences of leaders. This important volume offers a detailed and thoughtful description of intersecting factors that contribute to the ways in which leaders experience and cope with personal crisis to spur additional research attention to this neglected area. This book also offers current and prospective leaders advice and direction on effectively navigating personal crisis.
