Front Cover
Nicholas Brealey, 2005 M09 22 - 234 pages
"Nelson showed loyalty to his captains, his officers and his men, and he expected this of them in return. Jones and Gosling ask a series of provocative leadership questions inspired by Nelson's own approach to leading: Why be a leader? Do you need to be an expert in your field to lead your field? Should you be visible and lead form the front, or practise quiet leadership? How do you balance your personal and working life? Why be a team player? Can you be a leader and a manager? Why should others follow you? What will be your legacy?"--Jacket.
