Written by a team of experienced practitioners who have worked in HR in many organizational sectors, Leadership and Management Development offers students an ideal blend of critical and practice-based approaches. Drawing on their extensive backgrounds, the authors combine insights from the latest research with a multitude of cases and examples.

The cases are followed by reflective questions and problem-based scenarios that encourage academic, practical, and personal development and provide opportunities for assessment. Leadership and Management Development also includes separate chapters on two key issues--ethics and diversity--and a wide range of pedagogical features and academic references. The text is enhanced by a Companion Website containing resources for students (full audio podcasts featuring practitioners who expand on case studies from the book; sample exam questions with answers; a flashcard glossary; annotated web links arranged by topic; and further reading updates) and instructors (PowerPoint-based slides for each chapter; a teaching outline and answers to questions; and seminar activities).

All too often people who are successful in their jobs are promoted to management without an appropriate level of support. They are often unaware of the implications of managing a team and their need to develop new skills to lead and inspire people to do their best work. Instead, many merely focus on "getting the job done". The significant missing element is that which involves "people". Managers typically understand the task-related aspect of the work and underestimate the importance of the human element. This is the area that really counts in leadership. It is not only new managers who must pay attention to this vital element.This book seeks to address the widespread needs of managers in the quest for success in their leadership.You will learn:An insightful look into building confidence and developing your own leadership styleLearn how to effectively communicate and overcome common communication barriersDevelop key skills for building relationships, providing constructive feedback and coaching othersCustomer review:"Good managers are usually also good leaders, O'Neil tells us, but no matter how good they might be there would be few who couldn't learn something from this little pearl of a book. In fact, there would be few people who couldn't. O'Neil has captured the essence of what true leadership is all about and she's managed to explain it very clearly in non-preachy prose in less than a hundred pages. This is a very special little book."
