Hello everyone,

I'm going to be starting a degree in Leadership and Management in October (with the Open University in the UK) whilst teaching for and directing a business in France. Afterwards I am planning to do an MBA. The reason I am posting is just to ask any existing directors and managers out there for any top tips they have for dealing with people in this context, any books/resources they would recommend and anything else I may not know to ask about.

Thanks in advanced to everyone for their time.

All the best,

Liam

Leadership books.... You can find them everywhere. 

I'll tell you this quite plainly, unless it is a military leadership book, it's probably worthless.

You manage resources, but you lead people. Most managers could not lead a wet dog inside during a thunderstorm.

Here's useful link to the Combine Arms Research Library (all digital) on leadership.

Thank you for the advice gentlemen, I will have a look at those resources. I have noticed that most managers don't know a thing about leadership and I intend not to be that manager.

Personal and Political Advice from Rome.

His Holiness, Pope Francis, has a warning sign posted outside his office door.It begins "VIETATO LAMENTARSI"In English, "WHINERS PROHIBITED."The sign ends with “To get the best out of yourself, concentrate on your potential and not on your limitations. Stop complaining and take steps to improve your life.” The same advice, in a far, far blunter form, is found in a book."Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get A Life: A Kick Butt Approach to a Better Life."--Larry Winget, 2004See More
