Few things are more important than the quality and credibility of leaders, as they play a vital role in every aspect of our modern lives. Yet strong leadership is a difficult skill to master. Good leaders must learn not only to manage, analyze and appraise, but also to encourage, improve and inspire. Here John Adair, the UK's foremost expert on leadership training, shows how lessons can be learned from the ancient wisdom of Confucian philosophy and applied to modern leadership techniques, enabling you to become a better leader. He demonstrates how, far from being merely interesting quotes from ancient lore, Confucius sayings, or Analects, reveal how you can develop all aspects of your leadership ability ? from communication and creativity, to motivation and decision-making. Whether you already lead a team or an organization, or you have aspirations to do so, this unique combination of ancient and modern wisdom will help you to develop the confidence, characteristics and skills you need to be the best leader you can be.
