Leadership Scaffolding


  • Judith Elliott, Elconsulting Cambridge Ltd, UK

Leadership Scaffolding discusses the practicalities for middle managers of leadership - providing readers with the framework or scaffolding to being an effective manager. It’s not theory - it’s all about what the seriously good managers actually ‘do’. When we start our careers, we learn in compartments: this course on delegation, that workshop on motivation. Of course hit and run training courses help us, as does a good role model or two, but the best managers are the ones who construct a framework of actions around the main focus of getting the job done that means it gets done more efficiently, with less stress and is ultimately more rewarding for all concerned.The good news is that although there are some common, threads this framework, or scaffolding, has different shapes - depending on your unique business or management style. This book provides readers with that framework or scaffolding.
