* Only handbook available on outdoor leadership

* Sidebars written by noted outdoor leaders

Leadership is not a set of rules, but an art. It's not just skills and techniques, but a subjective blend of personality and style. A good leader must have self-confidence, intuition, compassion, and common sense. Can leadership be taught? Yes, according to author John Graham, who has spent a lifetime exploring the role of leadership in numerous venues. But, Graham points out, it's not just mastery from the head, it's also learning how to monitor the heart.

Outdoor Leadership covers the skills, attitudes, and intuition necessary for leading in an outdoor setting and beyond. All aspects of leadership are explored including forming a personal style, making decisions, communicating effectively, team building, and coping with stress. The principle taught here may be applied to outdoor leadership in all settings, from a day trip to a siege mountaineering expedition. The skills are equally appropriate to other leadership situations̱from running a business meeting to coaching the neighborhood softball team to serving as a role models for your child.

Each chapter features a leadership checklist and thoughts on leadership from a variety of outdoor experts, including climbers, bikers, wilderness travel experts, and adventurers. Outdoor Leadership is compelling reading filled with practical advice, anecdotes, and trail-tested wisdom - indispensable information and guidance for the complete outdoors person.
