Liberating Leadership book

Leading teams in times of change can be challenging and stressful, and sometimes leaders feel as if they are having to go it alone. It can feel like a constant uphill struggle and becomes overwhelming. It can lead to burnout … either for the leader or their people.

There is a frightening statistic, in the UK at least, that we have on average 10 million people a year off with stress, depression and worse. And the number one reason why people leave their jobs is because of their leader.

So what do effective leaders to differently to create sustained high performance, while maintaining a level of balance for themselves?  The answer is a Mindset, a Process and a Set of Skills – which are all in the book.

Knowing your people are your greatest source of competitive advantage, how you lead them cannot be left to chance.

Liberating Leadership is an award-winning programme, capable of delivering significant performance improvement in people and also bottom-line results, in all types of business. If you are responsible for leading people, this book is a must.
