Simply Leadership

Bite sized guidance for practical leaders

About the Book

Your ability to lead can't be enabled by reading a book.

It takes hard work, personal sacrifice and a willingness to put the needs of others above yourself.

This book is written as a guide to highlight some of the characteristics of leadership. It does this by breaking down the qualities, knowledge, attitude, approach and values of successful leadership and presents these as propositions that are then explained as short sections. Each section is designed to be read in about 60 seconds so that you can dip in and out of the book easily. There are over 300 different propositions that are explained, so there's plenty to choose from.

This is not a book to guide your life. There is a wealth of opinion and subjective advice. Use it to help you think and to ask yourself questions about how you want to approach a leadership role.

Lastly... You can download this book for free. The purpose behind writing it was to help with personal self-reflection. If it can help others, that's great. If you want to donate to encourage me to write more, that would be very kind.

I hope you get some value from it.

About the Author

Malcolm Maclean
Malcolm Maclean

I have a passion for knowledge and I realise that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way.

My goals in writing are to learn a bit about the topic and myself while giving something back to anyone who can find value in the subject.

I don't have a formal qualification in leadership or management, but I've had the privilege and the pleasure to fill leadership roles in a few different ways. I take the responsibility of leading seriously, so this book is very much an effort in self-reflection to work through some of the aspects of leadership that I find worth thinking about.
