Leadership is about working with people to do new things in a world which is increasingly complex and fast changing. We need organisations that are flexible and sustainable, and organisations are made up of individuals. Leadership is not necessarily linked to authority. It is about mobilising people to tackle the toughest problems and to do their best work. Leadership is embedded in every one of us, but the key is to unlock our personal passion which will give us the courage to do things that appear difficult, uncertain or even unpopular.
This short guide is intended to do just that – to review what you do and why you do it and to help you become an enlightened leader. We hope that you will take a few minutes each day to read and then think about an aspect of leadership. Devoting time to noticing how you are and what you do and say will enable you to improve as a leader. Use this booklet to make notes on the ideas suggested. Try it every day for the next 26 days and see the difference it can make!
