You don’t need to be a parent to see the comparisons between raising children and creating next-generation leaders (or, indeed, becoming a better leader yourself). Like parenting, leadership is difficult, challenging and rewarding – sometimes all in the first hour of the day. You need to focus on five core areas to get the best out of your people: love, environment, health and wellbeing, language, and vision.
Wendy Born has drawn on her more than 25 years of corporate and management experience to create a unique framework drawn from the principles of parenting that will help you to build and lead great teams. Raising Leaders is a practical and engaging guide, packed with fascinating case studies and actionable advice for raising great leaders!
