Dr. Michael J. Urick, assistant professor of management and operational excellence and graduate director of the master of science program in management at the Saint Vincent College Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics and Government, is the co-author of a chapter in a book, Extreme Leadership: Leaders, Teams and Situations Outside the Norm.

Co-authored by Therese A. Sprinkle of the University of Dallas, the chapter is entitled, “Glenn Miller: Leadership lessons from a successful big band musician.” It analyzes the success of Glenn Miller’s band in the 1930s and 1940s and introduces the Leader-Context Effectiveness Model which suggests that the traits and behaviors needed by a leader are contingent on the leader’s complex environment.

The book was edited by Christina M. Giannantonio and Amy E. Hurley-Hanson and published by Edward Elgar Publishing.
