Description

A journey through The Ministry of Leadership: Heart and Theory will provide insight into the pillars of effective leadership: respect, purposeful vision, a sense of humor, and the ability to see the goodness in others, even in the face of anger. As president of Washington State University from 1967 through 1985, Dr. Terrell recounts major and minor challenges of his era, then explains how creative solutions abated controversies and averted potential crises.

As he relates his experiences, Dr. Terrell epitomizes the inherent traits of an effective leader: one who guides with both his head and his heart. His available, approachable style helped him develop strong, lasting relationships with students, faculty, alumni, and regents. Although he invited disagreement, he utilized the principle of shared governance to manage conflict. As a result, he was able to embrace a campus with diverse opinions and reactions, and produce a community.
