"leadership is action, not position"
Donald H McGannon
There is much debate on what constitutes essential leadership skills. In choosing the skills for this second book and book 1 I have drawn on:
- Leadership and management theory, models and philosophy
- My experiences as a leader and team member
- Questionnaires and surveys
- Those skills which are practical and transformational in nature
By adapting these skills to your own style and organisational context you will become a more adaptive, inspirational, effective and transformative leader. Your team will in turn develop into a mature, supportive and synergistic group whose actions are congruent with organisational vision and the constant striving for excellence.
