I am a campus recreation professional and I am able to apply this book to numerous situations that would student employees handle on a daily bases.
The best thing about this book is it's not written at the PhD level, or a 6th grade level. Rather, in the middle where everyone enjoys it. It's an easy and quick read while also being a very thoughtful book as well.
If you are planning on facilitating this book, I highly recommend purchasing the assessment material. Although a separate cost, you are able to operationalize leadership. There are two different assessments:
Student LPI: Self - This is what the reader fills about about themselves to see where their strengths and weaknesses are in the 5 practices.
Student LPI: Observer - This is what others fill about about the reader. This is valuable because it is probably a little more accurate than the self assessment.
Student LPI Scoring Software - A CD that you can input all the data into to generate professional reports. **Note - Make sure you get the 3rd edition as it is the current one as of 05/2013**
