This is an excellent book and I have adopted this for my DN Programme for post graduate students. We are already using some of the reflective exercises within it. Some students have since purchased it.

This book will offer the students a framework for them to develop their knowledge of leadership and be able to reflect their own position then build on key knowledge and skills to enhance their role. It is clearly written and easy to understand making it a good resource for nurses new to general practice

This book is easy to understand and contains helpful information on leadership theory, managing change and working in teams effectively. Having used it with final year student nurses, it has been very helpful at introducing these concepts for development of their service improvement projects and their roles as leaders. The activities aid reflection on one's own practice as well as further exploration.
