“Most Senior HR and Learning Development Managers are familiar with academic theories of leadership, but many find it difficult to apply these theories in their own organization. Rosemary Ryan’s text will help them bridge this gap through the use of frameworks and examples which link relevant theory to practice. The book draws upon her extensive experience across a wide organizational spectrum and will provide the reader with many ideas about practical leadership development.”
