Leadership matters. It makes a difference to the way your organisation performs and the way it is perceived by employees and outsiders alike. John Adair is the UK's leading leadership guru and is regularly listed as one of the most influential management thinkers of all time. His work on Action Centred Leadership, with its simple but powerful three circles model of task, team and individual, has shaped leadership training for more than a generation. In this book he has distilled a lifetime's work to help you develop leadership within your organisation from board level right through to team leaders. For the first time he tackles the issue of whether his ideas, which began life in a military environment in the 1960s, can be transferred to the modern workplace. With case studies from Mitsubishi, The University of Surrey Engineering Department and a not-for-profit foreign development programme operating in Armenia, Adair comprehensively shows that his methods are being applied successfully in all types of organisations, in all types of cultures and at all levels of leadership.
