Product Description

So you’ve got the top job … now what?

Many people find themselves in a senior leadership role without the formal training or support they may have had before.

It’s Tough at the Top is a practical, no-nonsense guide to upper-level management from a respected leader in the voluntary sector.

Drawing upon her experiences as a manager, development consultant and chief executive, Debra Allcock Tyler gets to the heart of what matters in senior management, combining leadership theory and models with personal anecdotes and real-life situations.

No sugar-coating, no soft soap, she just tells it as it is.

Illustrations by Private Eye, The Spectator and The Sunday Times cartoonist Grizelda

‘Go into many offices of CEOs in our sector and you will find well-thumbed copies close at hand. Its ideas have got many of us over rough ground more lightly. Perhaps it should be retitled “In Case of Emergency Open Here”!’ Peter Wanless, Chief Executive, NSPCC [from the Foreword].

‘Manages to blend real-life experience and sound academic study, while making the book a pleasure to read. Written in an accessible, practical style it doesn’t preach; rather it gives you the opportunity to reflect on your own leadership style and improve both as a boss and as a human being.’ Alex Swallow, The Influence Expert.

‘Practical, sympathetic and constructive and answers many of the questions we might be embarrassed to ask.’ Bridget Warr, Chief Executive, United Kingdom Homecare Association.
