This is exactly the sort of book on leadership we need for the modern world in which we live. Katy Granville-Chapman and Emmie Bidston's writing is clear, engaging and communicates a deep understanding of the human condition -“ a welcome tonic when an ever-growing body of literature simply adds any adjective before the word -˜leadership' and claims to be the great catch-all for success. Instead, the authors ground their message in research from a number of different fields, focusing on the essential ingredients which make for a meaningful relationship between the leader and their people. Their particular focus on values is spot-on.
Packed with numerous case studies, useful exercises and practical tips, Leader is a must-read for anyone interested in learning about what it takes to lead with compassion, authenticity and success in the twenty-first century.
