The Leadership Book Club – in conversation with Jo Owen

In partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing 
Join us for our Virtual Book Club where we will review the recently published  Smart Leadership: The Ultimate Handbook for Great Leaders by Jo Owen.
Book Description:
Wherever they are in their career, this guide will give professionals a comprehensive understanding of the basic building blocks of effective leadership and management.

For all professionals, knowledge of the key elements of high-quality leadership is vital, whether they are existing managers, taking on additional managerial responsibilities, or looking ahead to their career goals. This base of knowledge stretches from the individual - leading yourself - to the group, leading teams and even entire organizations.

In tackling all these key aspects, the book equips individuals to progress in any area of leadership and management, from team-building to strategic planning. It also addresses the unique challenges of remote leadership that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an essential guide for anyone looking to thrive in a new era of modern leadership.
