The Leadership Pocketbook

Pocketbook cover

by Fiona Elsa Dent

Written for leaders at all levels - strategic, organisational and team level - The Leadership Pocketbook explains how to inspire, influence, deal with change and achieve objectives. Illustrated throughout, the book adopts a practical approach, setting out the principles of leadership, the role of the leader, the skills required for effective leadership and the key challenges facing leaders in the modern business environment. A focus of the book, described by the author as "perhaps the most necessary skill for any leader", is self-awareness – to know yourself, to realise what your leadership strengths and weaknesses are and what you must continue to develop.
