This edition combines the most up to date research on the psychology of leadership with years of refinement informed by practical application in the field. It is the culmination of work with thousands of leaders from all walks of life and is based on lessons derived from their successes and challenges.
The book explains the psychology of leadership, its basis in personality, and discusses the neuroscience of leadership to enhance understanding of leadership’s foundations. It shows that, rather than being the preserve of heroic, all-capable super-humans, complete leadership is the province of diverse teams of leaders whose complementary differences enable effective performance in the three domains of leadership: the strategic, operational and interpersonal domains.
“I have seen the application of these ideas enable individuals and teams from around the world to understand what it is they need to do, and why, and align their personal and collective efforts to work together effectively and deliver results in a way they found astonishing.”
(Paul Chapman, Fellow in Operations Management, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford)
“So keep this book at your elbow. The ideas it brings to life are profoundly useful. And it’s an enjoyable read along the way.”
(Sir Rod Eddington, Chairman, JP Morgan Australia and New Zealand)
