This is a unique collection of over 40 practical learning exercises devised and tested by John Adair, one of the world's acknowledged authorities on leadership development. All the exercises - many now classics and some published here for the first time - are designed to facilitate the development of core leadership skills. The exercises are divided into themed groups: Construction Exercises, Discussion Exercises, Thinking Exercises, and Out-of-doors Activity Exercises. As well as details on how the exercises work, the author provides background context on where, when and how to use them. John Adair has drawn up four suggested programmes, each aimed at learners with different levels of experience, or concentrating on a particular leadership skill. In addition, a learning point matrix helps you match exercises against the skills you are seeking to develop, enabling you to put together your own tailored, and focussed, learning events. The result is a volume that will be a powerful tool for all training and development specialists.
