Product description

Review

Care to Dare is recommended to those who are interested in developing as leaders, especially in terms of their soft skills. If nothing else, it s worth reading for the fact it dares to champion the increasingly overlooked idea that leaders can be nice people too. (Edge Magazine, 10th July 2012) A readable compendium of psychological theories of human motivation, inspirational stories and self-development tips. (HR, August 2012) Offers and innovative and thought provoking interpretation of a well-established theme. (Engineering & Technology Magazine, September 2012) The book s ideas are clearly expressed and greatly enhanced by numerous examples and anecdotes drawn from the authors experiences. (Times Higher Education Supplement, August 30th 2012) An unusual take on leadership that works well. (Management Today, October 2012) full of well-presented, readable and useful material (Professional Manager, November 2012)
