In her new book, leadership expert Wendy Born draws upon over 25 years' experience and shows how to make small changes that have a big impact, ensuring you become an active, directive and perceptive leader with the skills to influence and lead in today's workplace. When you learn to balance the languages of leadership you start to get yourself noticed, to manage anyone at any level and to build your reputation in the market. Readers learn how to better manage:

  • Team leaders - to work together, to learn from and leverage each other's experience without getting competitive, and to be more effective in managing their own team performance
  • Peers - to have productive and positive relationships, make decisions more effectively and to be more focused putting aside individual agendas
  • Your leader - to ensure they're your biggest advocate, to give you the space and support needed to get the job done

Packed with simple, practical tools and techniques you can action and implement every day, The Languages of Leadership empowers you with the tools you need to make a greater impact, both individually and organisationally.
