From reviews: "I found this book to be an excellent read... My favourite part is at the end of each chapter where the authors very kindly give a chapter summary. I would say this, with learning outcomes for each chapter, is the reader’s ‘pot of gold’ – and an excellent resource for students. The social and political stance of this text is sensitively weaved throughout, encouraging the wider thought processes of the reader. Images and illustrations provide a welcome and useful change to the traditional academic text, and I would recommend the book as an important reference resource for those starting on their leadership journey, or for those wanting to update. A well-informed, easy read that I will be recommending to our students to support their studies." The Biomedical Scientist, 2013: 70 (4) "This is an excellent book for anyone who is starting to take an interest in Leadership within their health or social care role... Overall, the book is clearly aimed at practitioners and should be a ‘must-read’ for those who wish to understand more about practical leadership and who aspire to more senior positions within their field of practice." Lecturer, Staffordshire University Faculty of Health Sciences Leadership in Health and Social Care is an accessible text for students and practitioners seeking to develop their leadership skills. "I commend this book to you as a ‘way in’ to the leadership world for anyone working in health and social care. It treats you like an adult and expects you to take responsibility for your own leadership development. We now know that good leadership has a direct relationship with good services and we can certainly no longer afford mediocrity. We need leaders to enable the disruptive innovation that will be required to improve the quality of care with less resource to do so." From the Foreword by Karen Middleton, Chief Health Professions Officer for England. Key features: · Introduces the concept of leadership and its importance in health and social care. · Discusses the skills and qualities that make for effective leadership. · Analyses the role of the leader as a catalyst for change. · Helps readers to explore their own perceptions of leadership through activities and scenarios.

In his first book, visionary social care leader Liam Palmer, shares anecdotes and well researched articles to challenge, inform and ultimately raise standards in the care home sector. He applies his strategic thinking to a number of complex problems within care e.g. the ""agency problem"" and how to take charge of a challenged home. His skill is to unpick these dynamics and identify the drivers and forces at work. Common themes are accountability and the importance of using empathy. He weaves in elements from mindfulness, staff empowerment and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and CBT. Problems are opportunities that need our best efforts - everyone matters and ultimately he believes that delivering great care comes down to effective leadership.
