Leading Well is about the inspiration of leadership. It focuses squarely on the personal attributes that can transform managers into leaders and good leaders into great leaders.
For this – the second book in its Leadership Series – the Institute of Managers and Leaders asked its membership of more than 10,000 which were the most important personal attributes for leadership success. The top 7 attributes selected are explored in detail in this book.
Respect, integrity, emotional intelligence, ability to inspire, authenticity, self-awareness and decisiveness lie at the very heart of the ability for a leader to lead well. These attributes are presented in each of the 7 chapters and each is supported by case studies, practical advice, real-life examples, strategies for improvement and interviews with some of today’s top leaders. The result is a book that is useful, practical and inspiring. Leading Well isn’t about leadership theory; it’s about the practice of leadership. It’s about leaders rolling up their sleeves and doing things differently to have an impact.
