Urick (Emerald Publishing, $27.00 - Part of the series Exploring Effective Leadership Practices through Popular Culture, Urick examines management theories related to mentorship and learning, transformational and transactional leadership, ethical decision making, bases of power, mindfulness, multi-tasking, and more. As you learn to apply these theories, you can become at one with the Force to find balance in your leadership style. Each theory is viewed through the lens of various aspects of the Jedi approach to exerting influence.
