"There is no one from whom I would rather hear about digital leadership than Josie Ahlquist! What makes this book truly special, beyond the treasure trove of practical suggestions, is the emphasis on the importance of being purposeful and genuine in one’s use of digital media to support individuals and communities. The book situates the ‘social’ at the heart of social media activity – social justice, social networks, and social responsibility."
 — George McClellan, Associate Professor of Higher Education, University of Mississippi

In this groundbreaking book, Josie Ahlquist provides readers with the tools they need to take a strong, values-based approach to leadership in the various digital spaces vital to the world of higher education today. Filled with real-world examples and tools to negotiate this ever changing digital landscape, the book fills an important niche in the literature: A user manual for your digital leadership journey.

Each chapter includes tools and tactics, as well as stories that bridge the gap between technology and connection with community. This book doesn’t have a recipe for cooking up the next viral video, it offers lots of ways to stay true to individual and organizational values while engaging online. Whether a college president, dean of students, associate professor, or a program coordinator, there is a need for leaders who aren’t just early adopters and social media enthusiasts, but authentic individuals who back up their technology use with a purposeful philosophy and a values-based approach to their role.
