Product description


"Have I and other founders, academics and authors of leadership books been found out?! This stunning book questions the perceived wisdom of leadership theories based on empirical evidence that underpin the endless lists and counter lists produced to cajole leaders into improving their practice. Jo Owen has written an impressive analysis presented in an easy to read light hearted manner; providing the ultimate practical advice to all leaders - Leadership is a team game." (Professor Sonia Blandford, Founder and CEO Achievement for All, Professor of Education and Social Enterprise UCL, author ‘Middle Leadership in Schools’)

"If you want a cookie cutter approach on how to be a leader, buy another leadership book. If you want to understand the myths behind the cult of leadership and the practical steps you can take to improve as a leader, buy this one" (Graeme Duncan. Founder and CEO of Right to Succeed)

"Myths of Leadership brilliantly exposes the most seductive "snake oil" that leaders - experienced and new - are exposed to, and more often than not succumb to. Jo Owen instead suggests a more grounded, practical but equally positive reality that helps leaders make a big step forward." (Sharath Jeevan, Founding CEO of STIR)

"Jo Owen's newest book is full of pragmatic advice which cuts through the myths and rhetoric around leadership and really gets to the heart of what it is that makes great leaders. It is also full of great take away examples which are relevant at every stage of the leadership journey" (Natasha Porter, Founder and CEO of Unlocked Graduates)

Book Description

Explores over 40 of the most pervasive myths that all leaders and aspiring leaders should be able to recognize and relate to, from the entertaining to the potentially career damaging

Contains real-life examples from a diverse range of global companies and industries to show the reader how to spot myths in action

Is written by the bestselling and award winning author Jo Owen (The Mindset of Success and The Leadership Skills Handbook)

Contains compelling evidence from leadership theory, true business accounts and interviews to help the reader separate fact from fiction and become a better informed leader

Tackles fascinating myths about leadership such as: leaders are born not made, leaders should be the smartest people in the room, leaders should always be in control and the founder should always be the leader
