Dr Edward Brooks, Executive Director, The Oxford Character Project
In Leader, Katy Granville-Chapman and Emmie Bidston show why leadership centred on service, truth, kindness, empathy, generosity, purpose and love is what we need to take us forward through the hardest realities and challenges of life.
Katy and Emmie ground their argument in the latest research and illustrate it with compelling case studies of high-performing teams from the worlds of sport, business, healthcare, technology, politics and education. This is the leadership that powers Google, the All Blacks and the British Army - and is modelled by public figures such as Michelle Obama and Andrew Strauss. But it isn't all about big names. It's about strong character. Examples of servant leadership fill the book, as do practical leadership exercises.
This book doesn't simply introduce a way of leading; it inspires, challenges and guides you to step up and lead in your own context for the good of those around you.
