The quality of leadership is often the key difference between organisational success and failure; and between a positive, energizing, place to work, and a negative, stressful environment. This manual can help trainers and managers, directors, councilors and trustees to create cultures and working environments that motivate and inspire people. It presents effective leadership as inseparable from other issues of workplace well-being, and something that can pay dividends in terms of: higher standards of work; higher levels of job satisfaction; a better working environment; fewer mistakes or difficult situations to deal with; clearer procedures and expectations; more and better opportunities for learning. To help unlock these benefits, it provides material that is suitable for use by both experienced and less experienced trainers: a general introduction and overview, discussing the role and significance of leadership and its development in modern organisations; 11 exercises, together with guidance; 12 leadership biographies; and 14 presentation slides on which training courses and staff development exercises can be based; a reference summary of the main theoretical issues underpinning the work. Purchasers who subsequently register their purchase with RHP may obtain, at no extra cost, the worksheets, biographies and presentation slides from the manual in PDF and PowerPoint format. Peter Gilbert's previous book - Leadership: Being Effective and Remaining Human (RHP 2005) - was acclaimed: Asserts a powerful and clear image of the human service leader.A" International Journal of Leadership in Public Service. The chapter on the use - and potential abuse - of personal power and authority is essential reading - suitable for anyone practicing leadership at whatever level.A" Social Caring. Reminds us that leadership occurs at all levels...impressive.A" Nursing Standard. Provides excellent scope for reflection on personal aspirations and performance.A" Social Caring. An immense amount of useful material.A" Youth & Policy. This new manual will be especially useful to anyone who wants to move away from managerialist approaches to the workplace, towards cultures and environments that promote 'remaining human' as well as 'being effective' - through enlightened leadership. 'Managerialism' puts the emphasis on targets and the accompanying unavoidable bureaucracy; and can be seen to be trying to squeeze as much out of people as possible. It results in a negative impact on morale and a tendency to produce disaffection and stress. On the other hand, the holistic approach in Developing Leadership will help you to: get the best out of people; create cultures and working environments that motivate - and inspire - because they are genuinely supportive of staff and appreciative of their efforts; develop the skills of actual and aspiring leaders; help others learn how to train and support leaders. It will be of value to a wide range of organisations across the private, public and voluntary sectors.
