New in the Library: Leadership Resources
NIC News & Updates


From the introduction:025971

Correctional leaders today, perhaps now more than ever, must focus on their own leader development, the development of their followers, and exhibit positive leadership behavior by making sound research-based decisions and problem solving effectively. We believe that this annotated leadership bibliography will assist the field of corrections, particularly supervisors, managers, senior level leaders, and executives, in their journey to create learning organizations for the future.

With a special focus on the topic of corrections, the National Institute of Correction’s “Leadership: Selected Resources for Criminal Justice Professionals” contains over 100 references and annotations on leadership.  Key areas include:

  • Leadership in General
  • Authentic Leadership Development
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Leader Member Exchange (LMX) Theory
  • Positive Psychology
  • Psychological Capital
  • Transformational Leadership
  • Leadership in Corrections
  • Succession Planning
