WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE — Dr. John Nestor has been selected as a co-author for a book on interdisciplinary leadership.
Two years ago, the book’s editors, Dr. Denver Fowler, associate dean at California State University, Bakersfield and Dr. Meghan Raehll, assistant dean for the Center for Teaching Excellence at Franklin University, published on LinkedIn a competitive request for chapter proposals for a book on interdisciplinary leadership — “On Leadership: An Interdisciplinary Approach.”
After an extensive selection process, Nestor’s chapter was chosen by the editors and Information Age Publishing (IAP)-Charlotte, N.C. as the capstone chapter.
“It was the perfect COVID home project.” Nestor said. “I was assisted by Sarah Nestor-Lane, educator and consultant for the National Park Service.”
Based on his interdisciplinary leadership career across K-12, higher education, manufacturing, EMS, and law enforcement, he highlights in chapter 23 crossover leadership attributes and strategies which transformed underperforming organizations which he led into nationally-recognized best practices.
“Crossover leaders are rare. Based on their effective leadership across sectors, they thoughtfully identify an organization’s strengths and weaknesses, then move expeditiously on opportunities. Their focused and intense personal engagement with constituents results in renewed purpose, higher performance, and buy in,” Nestor added.
IAP noted this book is one of the most comprehensive books on interdisciplinary leadership to date, including global authors from education, business, nonprofits, government, military, law enforcement, and healthcare. Nestor’s chapter was selected as the book’s capstone as an “exemplar in interdisciplinary leadership.”
“In support of local authors, Carnegie Public Library is pleased to add ‘On Leadership: An Interdisciplinary Approach’ to our collection,” said Jodi Noel, circulation manager for Carnegie Public Library. “The book will be available for check out to all Fayette County residents.”
Dr. Nestor has served in executive positions at Riten Industries, Inc., Miami Trace Local Schools, Ohio State and Columbus State. He is a graduate of Washington City Schools, Miami University and The Ohio State University, specializing in policy and leadership. He resides in Washington C.H. with his wife and Washington City Schools educator Amy Nestor.
