leadership
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In today’s turbulent world, effective leadership at every level of an organization is essential. Leadership is not only about motivating people, it is also about providing clear goals and a sense of purpose that everyone in the organization buys into.

One of the few books on leadership that can genuinely be called a ‘classic’, this pioneering work from leadership expert John Adair has transformed the understanding of how leadership works and how executives can become business leaders. Accessible guidance on exactly what you need to become a leader is presented in the form of a dialogue with a young business executive, who is soon to become a strategic leader.

Each fundamental aspect of leadership is exposed and explained in a concise, lucid way.

Not Bosses But Leaders will enable you to greatly improve your leadership skills. It is a book that doesn’t depend on historical models but springs from the day-to-day realities of management. It is the study of what a leader actually has to do.
