Recensioner i media
Overall the book provides a valuable contribution to the understanding of leadership, sustainability and the higher education sectors, as well as their interconnectedness ... The models developed, research undertaken and applied case studies presented make it compelling reading for leaders and aspiring leaders in higher education. * Journal of Applied Teaching and Learning * Brings a much-needed fresh perspective to leadership for sustainability, recognizing the need for sustainability to be 'just good business', bringing to the fore the need for the sustainability leader to align with key drivers in the Higher Education sector. It provides a robust and comprehensive understanding of not only what great sustainability leadership means, but tools, models and methods to make it happen. A must-read for the sector, but then it's time to roll our sleeves up and lead the change. * Iain Patton, CEO, Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges, UK * Makes an invaluable contribution to the field of leadership in higher education. I have not previously encountered such a thoroughly-presented examination of the connections between appropriate theory on sustainability and on leadership, seen through the lens of higher education institutions and their practices. * Paul Gentle, Academic Director, Invisible Grail Limited and Associate, Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, UK *
