A Practitioners Guide to Leadership
A Selection of 80 Practical and Inspirational Leadership Insights
Gordon Tredgold's approach to leadership is simple and pragmatic. This ebook is a collection of his blogs on leadership in which he shares his thoughts often providing an example from his career of how that thought had been implemented or the benefit that had been achieved. In three months, Evan Carmichael rated Gordon's blog in the Top 50 Blogs to Watch in 2013. Shortly after that it was rated as one of the Top 30 Leadership Blog Hidden Gems by the Center for Management and Organizational Expertise. During the first 12 months the blog had over 250,000 hits and had a following of over 200,000 fans via Facebook.
As Professor Rune Todnem says in his introduction, "Gordon’s approach to leadership should be compulsory reading to all organisational decision makers - at all levels in all sectors. It may be simple, but as Gordon puts it: Simple doesn’t make it easy.
This collection of blogs is not another quick-fix to success. It’s not a “How to become a Lotto-Millionaire without Even Playing”, “How to look like Brad Pitt in Three Easy Steps”, or “How to Stop Smoking by Drinking More” …. This book can’t promise success. What is does deliver though is simple and pragmatic advice based on the experience of someone who has successfully been there and done that."
A Practitioners Guide to LEADERSHIP is the book to read if you are a practioner focused on leadership and want to gain know-how FAST.
