Nobody In Charge–Essays on the Future of Leadership, by Harlan Cleveland

Nobody in Charge

Although this collection was written some 15 years ago, it reads like it was published yesterday.  Back in my own graduate school days, anything written by Harlan Cleveland was a must read. When anyone is acknowledged by the “Leaders” of a given field, we should know that his or her work is worth more than a look. Either from an historic or contemporary reference, Professor Cleveland has always been able to identify what’s important.  He has always understood purpose of thought as well as purpose of action. For me, he has been just as influential as Drucker, Bennis, Gardner and Pink.  For those of us with public sector experience, he compliments the scholarship of Waldo, Frederickson, Nalbanian, Durant, Cooper, and the Denhardts. For those of you interested  in more than the latest leadership trend or management flavor of the month, “No Body in Charge” will not dissappoint.
