Senior Service continues to lead the way, 11 Dec. 2012
This is quite simply an essential guide to getting things done - as a member of the Senior Service I clearly recognise the examples provided throughout this book and aspire to delivering my leadership within the principles set out so helpfully here. Andrew St George's extensive research, with his willingness to live alongside those he was studying, has ensured the book captures the reality of leadership in all its facets encountered in the Naval Service. However, its usefulness goes well beyond the context of the Royal Navy, which is why I recommend it to anybody engaged in delivering an outcome that involves more than themselves; this book provides the essential guide rails to achieving team work at its best. Andrew clearly 'gets it' and, with his help and a bit of practice, so can you.
