Everybody can be a better leader,
a more complete leader.
Everybody can use more of their
potential to inspire and empower
others to achieve better results.
Great leadership isn’t formulaic,
nor is it easy, but it is learnable.
This book helps you assess your
current leadership abilities, across a
whole range of skills – and then shows
you how to improve them.
It will help you understand your team’s
perception of you, rate your performance
on the ‘leadership scorecard’ and coach
yourself to better leadership skills.
Complete Leadership contains
techniques that are learnable,
measurable and based on evidence.
It shows you how to improve and how
to know if you have improved,
delivering a straightforward and
practical personal leadership self-
coaching programme that will lead
you to lead others better.
