About the book

The Inspirational Leader argues that leaders are not born but made. Taking the form of conversations between a young chief executive and the author, it explores the nature and practice of leadership. Each aspect of leadership is studied and discussed, so that the key skills are revealed for anyone to adopt and use to inspire and encourage others.

Thought-provoking and accessible, it will help you to develop the necessary charisma and qualities to make you an inspiring leader. Leaders are not a particular type of person, and the valuable advice presented in this book can help anyone realize their full potential.
