Making Sense of Leadership identifies the five key roles used by effective leaders. A practical, accessible and solution-focused book, it helps entrepreneurs, managers and leaders develop their leadership skills. The authors examine successful leaders to determine the type of leadership roles which succeed. This allows them to present five distinct roles of leadership, which are used to promote positive change and innovation. The authors encourage the reader to play with these, recognizing and taking on those elements which most appropriately suit their situation.
Discovering these roles offers an important guide to the new leader, in order for them to shape their own leadership approach. It also provides interesting challenges to the existing leader who wants to refresh their stance in order to tackle a new situation. The book is supported by exercises for both individuals and groups, so that the text can also be used as a learning and development resource and for team facilitation and one-to-one coaching.
