The Business Leaders Essential Guides
The Essential Guides series has been written for business leaders who wish to change the course of events.
As a business leader you may be an entrepreneur, a small business owner, starting up a new venture, managing an SME team; or alternatively leading a team or division in a larger corporate or not for profit enterprise. What sets you apart is the ambition and desire to do things differently, to change the status quo and take your business or team to the next level.
Each of these books draws on deep practical experience in managing businesses and real life business challenges with many tools and techniques which you can implement today.
