Effective leadership is crucial for improving the quality of care for patients and others and for developing staff. This highly readable and informative book, written by experts in the field, will be of interest to all nursing and allied health professionals, particularly those aspiring and emerging leaders' - Professor David R Thompson, University of Leicester, UK. 'This is a book that all students studying leadership in health care have been waiting for. It provides an excellent broad perspective on aspects of leadership common to all disciplines. It aims to empower all health care providers to fully realise their potential as a leader and demonstrates how this can be achieved in reality. It is inspirational, exciting to read with its many different case studies, exercises to bring about reflection and should result in a more empowered and enlighten work force' - Phil Halligan, University College Dublin, Ireland.
