Leader is an outstanding book for anyone interested in becoming a better leader. The principles covered are relevant to everyone: from executive to apprentice, from parents to teachers and coaches, and, in my case, to those involved in delivering healthcare as both a doctor and as a leader of clinical teams.
The book skilfully weaves case studies of leadership excellence through a narrative that concentrates on compassion, empathy and vision to inspire, motivate and develop your team. A useful feature is the thoughtful practical exercises for the reader to reflect upon and put into action.
Leader is easy to read and is perfect for either a twenty-minute dip at bedtime or a leisurely afternoon with a cup of tea. So if you're looking for a great book on leadership, my advice is to read this one.
