Back cover copy

Praise for "The Handbook of Leadership Development Evaluation" "This inspiring book fills a critical void in the leadership development field. Its diversity of evaluation content, authors, and approaches makes it an invaluable resource for anyone involved in designing, implementing, and evaluating leadership development programs. A must-have!" --Hallie Preskill, professor, School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences, Claremont Graduate University, and president-elect, American Evaluation Association "With so many funders using leadership development as a strategy, this book couldn't have come at a better time. More than a collection of individual chapters, this volume presents synthetic collaboration among the authors and the editors to explore how a variety of evaluation strategies are critical to the design, implementation, and outcomes of leadership programs. It is an important contribution to the field." --Constance Pechura, executive director, Treatment Research Institute "This Handbook is a must-have resource for anyone interested in the evaluation of leadership development programs. Evaluators working in other areas will also learn much." --Melvin M. Mark, president, American Evaluation Association, editor emeritus, "American Journal of Evaluation," and professor of psychology, Pennsylvania State University "This handbook cuts through the fog already created in the field. If you want real answers to basic leadership evaluation, get this Handbook. And use it." --Roger Kaufman, professor emeritus, Florida State University, distinguished research professor, Sonora Institute of Technology, Mexico, and director, Roger Kaufman & Associates "Leadership development has always existed in the context of the problem, the community, and the intended outcome--finally, we can come closer to assessing the true contribution of leadership development to the outcomes achieved." --Rick Foster, vice president for leadership programs, W.K. Kellogg Foundation
