Product Overview

"Peter combines a rich canvas depicting today's challenging higher educationenvironment with very practical advice on leadership. management and organisational development. It resonates strongly with my intense exposure to these issues. He also reminds us that good leaders and managers not only understand their sector and their institution. but also have a shrewd understanding of themselves. This is a good read and an extremely practical guide".---Ewart Wooldridge CBE. Chief Executive. UK Leadership Foundation for Higher Education
