   schema:reviewBody ""This study examines how the leadership qualities of the UN Secretaries-General affect how they address threats to peace and security. The personal traits of all seven Secretaries-General are measured and categorized into one of three leadership styles: managerial, strategic, and visionary. A framework of the influential activities available to the office is linked to each leadership style to establish a series of behavioral expectations. The connection is supported through a close examination of three office-holders: Dag Hammarskjold the visionary, Kurt Waldheim the manager, and Kofi Annan the strategist. This study demonstrates the impact of personal qualities on the operation of the Secretary-Generalship, provides a wealth of information on the office and the tenures of Hammarskjold, Waldheim and Annan, and extends knowledge on political leadership in the realm of international organization."--Jacket." ;
