The Leader's Handbook (Second Edition) updates the previous edition's references and resources, triples the number of photographs, and adds new chapters on Flow Theory and Behavior Guidance.
This book is based on over 35 years of practical experience, and very few, if any, leadership books have this depth of leadership analysis.
It is geared toward training and management of all age groups, and youth development, and will demonstrate how to effectively work with groups, and lead games play and team-building activities.
Topics include basic concepts, generating enthusiasm, physical and emotional safety, presentation, maintaining the flow of play, closing a game session, game theory, leader roles, managing a large event, positive discipline, situational leadership, and transition activities.
A variety of resources including books, magazines, websites, equipment, and organizations are also provided.
Focusing on more than just theory, The Leader's Handbook is a practical guide that shows leaders how to create fun with real people in real situations and has a special chapter on the application of "facilitative leadership" to a wide range of program areas.
