Energising Leadership

Nita Cherry

  • A practical book for anyone wishing to develop and hone their leadership practice - precisely because it frames leadership as a practise that is learned.
  • Focuses on professional leadership as deliberate, discerning, intentional behaviour, not as an unconscious set of habits or inherent personal traits.
  • Explores a range of leadership practices that are useful in dealing with common leadership dilemmas.
  • Includes an entire chapter on virtual leadership.
  • Incorporates the importance of mindful practice: being aware of the impacts of leadership action on the energy and efforts of others, and on one's own energy and effort.
  • Focuses on the dilemmas that challenge professional leaders: those that occur regularly in most situations and those that reflect the complexity of contemporary conditions.
  • Highlights that there is leadership potential in us all, therefore the book is useful for anyone working in an organisation regardless of level or position.
