Exponent Scientist Dr. Duane Steffey published a chapter in "Leadership and Women in Statistics." Dr. Steffey's chapter is titled, "Leadership in Statistical Consulting." The chapter begins with an overview of statistical consulting in academia, industry, and government, then proceeding to discuss the development of effective relationships with clients and colleagues, applicable theories of leadership, and professional ethics. In addressing these topics, the chapter explores how one can demonstrate leadership by creating exceptional value for clients, by developing the next generation of consulting statisticians, and by building the foundation for a successful and sustainable consulting business.
"Leadership and Women in Statistics" explores the role of statisticians as leaders, with particular attention to women statisticians as leaders. By paying special attention to women's issues, this book provides a clear vision for the future of women as leaders in scientific and technical fields. It also shows how emerging and current leaders of both genders in many disciplines can expand their leadership potentials.
