How to: Be a Better Leader
We know that businesses and organisations expect people at all levels to show initiative and display good leadership qualities, but to put this into practice is easier said than done. This book will show you how you can become a better leader, whether you're already in charge of a large team, or you're paving the way for your future career.
How to Be a Better Leader is designed to help you truly understand what it means to be a leader, as well as what good and bad leadership look like. Stefan Stern investigates the different ways in which men and women lead - and, crucially, how we can get nearer to genuine equality at work. He also highlights the language of leaders, and gives examples from around the world of different prominent leaders from business and politics, including Jeff Bezos, Indra Nooyi, Winston Churchill and Rosa Parks.

Essential reading. . . a primer of management thinking presented in a light – though not lightweight – publication.
