New Book Explores the “Pursuit of Sustainable Leadership”
David Rainey, acting dean of Rensselaer at Hartford and professor of practice in the Lally School of Management and Technology, has written a book titled The Pursuit of Sustainable Leadership:
Becoming a Successful Strategic Leader Through Principles, Perspectives and Professional Development, recently published by Information Age Publishing.
“True leaders are dedicated to their
endeavors and never stop making transitions and transformations to higher levels
of sophistication.”—David Rainey
Sustainable leadership encompasses the broad roles and responsibilities of leaders that cut across the whole organization and the entire extended enterprise. The underpinnings of sustainable leadership require strategic leaders and professionals to play leading roles in dealing with critical issues affecting business and people.
According to Rainey, “Sustainable strategic leaders ensure that their organizations and enterprises are fully capable and responsive to external forces and market spaces and have the potential to be successful. They serve and support markets, customers, and stakeholders and provide them with solutions and successful outcomes.”
The “pursuit of sustainable leadership” involves the ongoing learning and development of business leaders and students to become true strategic leaders who employ the principles, philosophies, values, capabilities, and perspectives for achieving sustainable success. “True leaders are dedicated to their endeavors and never stop making transitions and transformations to higher levels of sophistication,” said Rainey.
Rainey is an internationally known author, educator, academic administrator, and consultant. He is a leading authority on technological innovation, product development, sustainable development, strategic leadership, strategic management, and energy management.
