Also included is a toolkit containing carefully selected and practical tools for leading and managing change.

From reviews: "I found this book to be an excellent read... My favourite part is at the end of each chapter where the authors very kindly give a chapter summary. I would say this, with learning outcomes for each chapter, is the reader’s ‘pot of gold’ – and an excellent resource for students. The social and political stance of this text is sensitively weaved throughout, encouraging the wider thought processes of the reader. Images and illustrations provide a welcome and useful change to the traditional academic text, and I would recommend the book as an important reference resource for those starting on their leadership journey, or for those wanting to update. A well-informed, easy read that I will be recommending to our students to support their studies." The Biomedical Scientist, 2013: 70 (4) "This is an excellent book for anyone who is starting to take an interest in Leadership within their health or social care role... Overall, the book is clearly aimed at practitioners and should be a ‘must-read’ for those who wish to understand more about practical leadership and who aspire to more senior positions within their field of practice." Lecturer, Staffordshire University Faculty of Health Sciences Leadership in Health and Social Care is an accessible text for students and practitioners seeking to develop their leadership skills. "I commend this book to you as a ‘way in’ to the leadership world for anyone working in health and social care. It treats you like an adult and expects you to take responsibility for your own leadership development. We now know that good leadership has a direct relationship with good services and we can certainly no longer afford mediocrity. We need leaders to enable the disruptive innovation that will be required to improve the quality of care with less resource to do so." From the Foreword by Karen Middleton, Chief Health Professions Officer for England. Key features: · Introduces the concept of leadership and its importance in health and social care. · Discusses the skills and qualities that make for effective leadership. · Analyses the role of the leader as a catalyst for change. · Helps readers to explore their own perceptions of leadership through activities and scenarios.

What Makes a Leader? (Harvard Business Review Classics)

Author: Daniel Goleman
Publisher: Harvard Business Press
ISBN: 1633692612

Page: 80
View: 8116
When asked to define the ideal leader, many would emphasize traits such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—the qualities traditionally associated with leadership. Often left off the list are softer, more personal qualities—but they are also essential. Although a certain degree of analytical and technical skill is a minimum requirement for success, studies indicate that emotional intelligence may be the key attribute that distinguishes outstanding performers from those who are merely adequate. Psychologist and author Daniel Goleman first brought the term "emotional intelligence" to a wide audience with his 1995 book of the same name, and Goleman first applied the concept to business with a 1998 classic Harvard Business Review article. In his research at nearly 200 large, global companies, Goleman found that truly effective leaders are distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence. Without it, a person can have first-class training, an incisive mind, and an endless supply of good ideas, but he or she still won't be a great leader. The chief components of emotional intelligence—self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill—can sound unbusinesslike, but Goleman found direct ties between emotional intelligence and measurable business results. The Harvard Business Review Classics series offers you the opportunity to make seminal Harvard Business Review articles a part of your permanent management library. Each highly readable volume contains a groundbreaking idea that continues to shape best practices and inspire countless managers around the world—and will have a direct impact on you today and for years to come.

This entirely new edition of a very successful book focuses on developing professional academic skills for supporting and supervising student learning and effective teaching. It is built on the premise that the roles of those who teach in higher education are complex and multi-faceted. A Handbook for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is sensitive to the competing demands of teaching, research, scholarship, and academic management. The new edition reflects and responds to the rapidly changing context of higher education and to current understanding of how to best support student learning. Drawing together a large number of expert authors, it continues to feature extensive use of case studies that show how successful teachers have implemented these ideas. It includes key topics such as student engagement and motivation, internationalisation, employability, inclusive strategies for teaching, effective use of technology and issues relating to postgraduate students and student retention. Part 1 explores a number of aspects of the context of UK higher education that affect the education of students, looking at the drivers of institutional behaviours and how to achieve success as a university teacher. Part 2 examines learning, teaching and supervising in higher education and includes chapters on working with diversity, encouraging independent learning and learning gain. Part 3 considers approaches to teaching and learning in different disciplines, covering a full range including arts and humanities, social sciences, experimental sciences through to medicine and dentistry. Written to support the excellence in teaching and learning design required to bring about student learning of the highest quality, this will be essential reading for all new lecturers, particularly anyone taking an accredited course in teaching and learning in higher education, as well as those experienced lecturers who wish to improve their teaching practice. Those working in adult learning and educational development will also find the book to be a particularly useful resource. In addition it will appeal to staff who support learning and teaching in various other roles.
