This is a very welcome book that brings together a range of seminal theories and applies them to the personal and organisational contexts of emerging leaders across health and social care.Suitable as a starting point for a wide variety of courses. the book challenges the student at all points to critically reflect on their own practice by way of a useful series of activities. The structure of the book is clear and logical to follow although I would have welcomed a concluding chapter that pulled the prior learning points together. Overall, a contemporary and relevant book that will hopefully play its part in encouraging and stimulating the leadership champions we need across health and social care.

Leadership like reflection has been a concept that anyone working in health and social care may profess to be very familiar with and feel that they know all the facts about.This book challenges this assumption and presents a multifaceted approach to this subject encouraging and challenging the reader to look to themselves and take control of their own approach to leadership.Now more than ever before do health care professionals need the courage to stand up and act as leaders.This book will be an invaluable guide to developing these skills.

This is a well set out book that is easy to navigate and brings leadership into the real world of healthcare. Using the learning outcomes and chapter summaries the reader is able to identify and work through areas of leadership and gain a firm understanding of its value to practice.
The activities provided throughout the book assist the reader with their everyday practice and the scenarios help place the theory into practice.

Emerging Leaders in Health and Social Care would do well to read this informative publication. It not only looks at what it means to be a leader but also helps them through the labyrinth that is leadershiop in Health and Social Care.

I have only had this book for a few weeks and it is already the sort of book that never makes it to the bookcase! It 'lives' on the corner of my desk and I have lost count of the times that I have referred to it. It pulls together all those Leadership Models that we use the most and explains them in an accessible and practical manner. I have already referred clients to several of its chapters as a very easy way to understand some of the concepts of leadership. With its easy to read sections, case studies and chapter summaries the book is also ideal for anyone new to leadership.
