Every leader has human resource management and development responsibilities. Using a behavioural science perspective, Developing High Performance Leaders will enable leaders throughout the various business sectors to increase the yield on their organization's human capital and help their team members achieve their goals.

In this instructive book, Philip Harris centres his teaching around five key aspects of the leadership process:

  • human behaviour and performance
  • communications
  • cultural influences
  • organizational relations
  • change management

A selection of strategies to take forward into practice are offered to the reader and the text is organized with a view to the leader sharing the learning obtained from this volume. For personal or group growth, each chapter is framed in terms of four "I’s": Introduction, Input, Interaction and Instrumentation, to provide an ideal framework for any adult education endeavour.

Developing High Performance Leaders is for all human resource development professionals, supervisors, managers and executives concerned with the career development of themselves and their team.
