Book- The Leadership Book - Neil Jurd
The Leadership Book, by Neil Jurd, has been written to encourage and enable effective leadership. Leadership is a simple but powerful concept which anyone with an open mind can apply. Leadership is about knowing where you are going and recruiting others to help. Leadership can be learned and anyone who chooses to work to improve their leadership will be able to do so. Better leadership means happier teams, and better output. The Leadership Book is split into four easily accessible chapters to help you to better understand leadership, people and ultimately how to lead individuals and teams.
