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.
This exciting new series of learning and development manuals brings together a team of highly experienced writers, practitioners and learning facilitators with series editor Neil Thompson, a well-respected author and educator. Together, they ensure that these manuals offer an effective way of bridging academic content with the challenging world of practice. As such, they will be invaluable for training presenters and tutors wanting to host events addressing the important range of issues covered by each manual.
Each one provides all the resources you need to provide a high quality learning experience, including helpful background material to set the scene, a range of exercises and worksheets to encourage participant involvement and associated PowerPoint slides to aid the clear and effective presentation of key elements of knowledge and practice. These expertly written resources will provide a foundation of understanding and confidence that will enable even the most inexperienced of trainers to provide high-quality training.
