    "Leading with Rhythm: An Excerpt from The Dance of Leadership"

    ASU Professors Bob Denhardt and Janet Denhardt author the latest issue of Nonprofit Research Abridged, published by the Center for Nonprofit Leadership and Management. Entitled Leading with Rhythm, the article is an excerpt from their upcoming book, which explores the artistic elements of leadership.

    Over the past year Denhardt and Denhardt have conducted in-depth interviews with artists and leaders in business, government, and the nonprofit world. According to Bob Denhardt, "Perhaps the most important thing we learned is that artists, musicians, and dancers clearly believe that artistic elements can be taught or at least improved upon. Art, even the art of leadership, can be developed, and artists can provide excellent advice on how to go about that." Rhythm was one of the artistic facets of leadership they discovered and explored.

    Nonprofit Research Abridged is a quarterly publication that connects nonprofit sector research and practice. One printed copy of Nonprofit Research Abridged is available to each nonprofit organization. The current issue and all previous issues, as well as related resources on each topic, are available online in the "Research that Matters" section of the Center's website at: If you organization is currently not receiving a printed copy of Nonprofit Research Abridged and would like to, please e-mail Stephanie Hiatt at
