Book Description Report this book

"The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already". John Buchan When you think of leaders and leadership, what comes to mind? Charismatic and inspirational or out-of-touch and remote? Leadership is a complex, many sided puzzle which many of us learn from mirroring someone else, picking it up as we go along or trial and error. This book examines the styles, models and philosophies of leadership that underpin and inform thinking. This book will provide you with an invaluable insight into how; style, approach, team working, communication, motivation and staff connection need to be continually assessed and evolved. Without the ability to flex your style and approach, you will be less likely to adapt to ever shifting working environments. This leads to reactive not proactive approaches which limit informed, logical, evidence based decisions.
