The success of Outside the Box Learning Resources is rooted in the passion of the team of professionals behind it. Led by husband and wife duo Conor and Kate Holmes, the renowned educational publisher has been providing education and health professionals with a comprehensive suite of learning resources and assessments for over fifteen years.
Covering a wide range of disciplines, Outside the Box Learning Resources is the complete solution for educators, and healthcare professionals to develop their skills professionally or to nurture the intellectual and emotional needs of those in their care.
Written for leaders at all levels – strategic, organisational and team level – the Leadership Pocketbook explains how to inspire, influence, deal with change and achieve objectives.
Illustrated throughout, the book adopts a practical approach, setting out the principles of leadership, the role of the leader, the skills required for effective leadership and the key challenges facing leaders in today’s business environment.
This 2nd edition sees the addition of a new section about leaders and social responsibility. “Contemporary business leaders must be aware of the major forces shaping society today and understand how their organisations need to respond and contribute to these challenges”, author Fiona Dent writes. She is Director of Faculty Development at Ashridge where she is also Programme Director for the Influencing Strategies and Skills Programme.
A focus of the book, described by the author as ‘perhaps the most necessary skill for any leader’, is self-awareness – to know yourself, to realise what your leadership strengths and weaknesses are and when you must continue to develop.
