Leading Humans: "Stuff that actually works" by Mr Andrew Bratt
'This is a very interesting and different book, it's points border on revelatory yet at the same time by the author's own admission most are just very concentrated common sense...... given that then, it is striking how few companies/workplaces/senior staff get this right if it is supposedly so obvious.

This is a wonderful handbook for an aspiring manager/leader to pursue perfection, even if it has to be in spite of their organisational culture.
