About The Book

Leadership in Speech-Language Pathology aims to equip future leaders in the field of communication sciences and disorders by addressing the qualities of effective leadership, internal and external problem solving, potential tests of leadership skills, negotiation, politics, and the concept of power. Readers will gain a comprehensive view of leadership with the discussion of healthy leadership cultures, current leadership trends, and how to instruct emerging leaders.

In the relatively young profession of speech-language pathology, the role models are still developing and ever changing as the educational and medical landscape becomes increasingly complex. The talents and skills of a new manager-leader will be tested, and it is the understanding of the big picture, the individual preparedness, and the unknown quantities that will serve to form a platform of the learning trajectory of a new senior appointee.

This resource combines unique, “in-the-field” perspectives with the latest research on leadership styles and strategies to equip speech-language pathologists with the knowledge they need to lead.
