The Leadership Skills Handbook: 50 Essential Skills You Need to be a Leader by Jo Owen

Winner of the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards in the 2012/2013 New Manager category, The Leadership Skills Handbook from best-selling author Jo Owen reveals the essential skills you need to be an effective leader. It shows you what works in practice, not in theory. Each skill is presented in a concise, easy to follow format, with an accompanying framework to help you think about how that skill should be ideally deployed. The skills are about the real challenges real leaders have to master, and as you observe and record real-life examples of skills in action, you will be developing your own unique formula for success in the context that matters to you. Based on research from over a thousand leaders throughout the world at all levels in the public, private and voluntary sectors, it identifies the practical skills to make you even more successful, and offers guidance on all key topics. This completely revised third edition of The Leadership Skills Handbook is about more than just technical skills, it is also about developing the people skills, behaviours and values you will need. Full of tips, exercises and practical wisdom, it will help you become a leader that people want to follow and develop your own formula for success, based on what works for you as well as what works for your organization. Focusing on the real challenges that leaders have to master, this book will help you become a leader that people want to follow.
