The Leadership Skills Handbook from best-selling author Jo Owen reveals the essential skills you need to be an effective leader. Most leadership books try to answer the question 'what is good leadership?' this book asks 'how can you learn to lead?' and then, based on research with over a thousand leaders, it provides over 50 vital attributes you need to lead successfully. Covering every aspect of leadership from technical skills and career skills, to people skills and personal values, it touches on: understanding yourself and others, delegating, motivating, conflict management, crisis management, problem solving, negotiating, networking, time management, humility and coaching. Full of exercises and practical wisdom, it will help you become a leader that people want to follow.
