"Leading Professionals" - First anniversary of publication


"The reason I found the book compelling is that it articulates and pulls together a lot of unspoken and hidden dynamics that can be observed within partnerships.”

It’s a year since Leading Professionals: Power, Politics, and Prima Donnas was published. During this time a lot of leaders of professional service firms have got in touch with me to explain how my findings and ideas have resonated with them – and to ask for my help with some of the trickier challenges they are facing.

It’s especially nice when one of them goes to the trouble to write a review. This review of the book, published in "Briefing" is written by Emma Dowden, COO at Burges Salmon. She mentions many of the ideas that have influenced other readers, such as the leadership constellation, plural leadership, and the discreet leadership practised by management professionals.
