By Peter J Reed

The author argues that leadership is about converting vision into reality via strategic thinking and co-ordinated action. It is about defining and clarifying a vision and inspiring others not only to ‘sign up’ to the vision, but to commit themselves enthusiastically to sharing responsibility for the process of implementing it.

Extraordinary Leadership provides a unique synthesis of the very best thinking on how to manage both performance and uncertainty, and a practical summary of the models that constitute best practice – both for business and for the public sector.

Written in an accessible and practical style, Extraordinary Leadership provides the reader with a clear understanding of the concepts and practice of leadership from the perspective of Peter Reed’s 20 years’ international experience in development and consulting.
