Companies whose managers improve leadership skills retain employees for longer

Leadership coach Ali Stewart, has written a new and practical book for business executives and entrepreneurs to demystify the art of leading and developing high performing teams.

‘Insights into Liberating Leadership’ provides an easy to follow eight point plan that gives a clear structure for managing teams. With research suggesting that people leave companies because of their line manager, with managers often focusing more on the task than on the people leading to rising levels of stress, there is a growing recognition of the need for practical ways to facilitate great teams.

Following 20 years of research and testing with leaders across a range of market sectors, Ali Stewart believes that the critical skills needed for leading effective teams are rarely taught, with most managers accepting that leaders are born not made.

“My book gives line managers, business owners and entrepreneurs an easy to follow methodology for creating high performance, freeing them up to focus on what really matters in their businesses. So many managers get ground down with people issues and don’t know the action needed to bring talent on. With leaders often setting out on their own or rising inside an organisation because of their business flair and technical specialism, they find the job of leading people much more difficult.”

In the book, Ali presents the fundamental mindset, key skills, and processes shared by high performing leaders. Having founded a management consultancy with Dr Derek Biddle in 1992, the research has been tested over time with Vodafone, Foreign & Commonwealth Office, General Motors, Friends Provident, Severn Trent Water, Sunseeker, Sealine and many other businesses both in the UK and globally. It is also licenced and taught to business coaches and consultants for use with their clients.

“Insights into Liberating Leadership is packed with actionable steps, invaluable guidance and genuine encouragement for leaders”, said leadership consultant Steve Moss.

Insights into Liberating Leadership is available on Amazon priced £16.99 (hardcover), £12.99 (paperback), £5.99 (Kindle)
