Managers are continually faced with new challenges and dilemmas. Getting the balance right is never straightforward, however. We are always having to find the right point of equilibrium between leading and managing, the short and long term, the individual and the team, activity and reflection, and being resolute and adaptable. Leading and managing well requires you to get the balance right by adjusting your style and approach. Success often depends on making conscious decisions about the point of balance on these five key axes. This book is a valuable aid to any manager to help judge when to lead and when to follow, when to press their point and when to concede to others, or when to lead from the front or steer from behind.
