Leadership has been a hot topic for some time now, but unfortunately it is subject to a number of common misunderstandings and oversimplifications. In Developing Leadership, the authors enable you to benefit from their experience and expertise in clearing away the misunderstandings and helping participants to get to grips with what leadership is really all about. Topics include understanding leadership, styles of leadership, personal and professional values, creating an effective culture, self-awareness, motivation and obstacles to leadership.
The quality of leadership is often the key difference between organisational success and failure and between an organisation being a positive, energising place to work and a negative, stressful environment.Written by two people with a great deal of experience of both serving as leaders and offering training on the subject, this resource has a great deal to offer individuals and organisations committed to developing genuine leadership as a foundation for establishing and maintaining effective and humane workplaces.
Developing this training manual enabled Peter Gilbert to bring together a number of themes around leadership which he had been interested in and engaged with over a number of years – in particular, a holistic approach to leadership.
