Publisher's Summary

What does it mean to 'be a leader'?

What does true leadership look like in the 2020s, when we're facing complexity and challenges in every direction - from climate disaster to political division, and inequality to consumer mistrust?

And how can we be part of the solution, while crafting a meaningful and satisfying career?

The answers aren't simple, but Holly Ransom is closer to finding them than most. Barely into her 20s, since chairing the G20 Youth Summit in 2014, Holly has been working with and learning from the heads of countries, companies and charities to help them disrupt what they do and change the world for the better. 

In her fearless and widely researched manifesto, this innovative young thinker shows how it is within everyone's reach, everyone's ability and everyone's power to be an effective leader - in business and beyond.

Through three principles - mindset, method and mastery - you'll discover how to first lead yourself, then others. And you'll benefit from the wisdom of the luminaries Holly has interviewed, from Susan Cain and Condoleezza Rice to Barack Obama and Malcolm Gladwell. 

This is the path to the leading edge - and becoming the leader the world needs you to be.

Holly Ransom gives us Leadership Gold

I've had Holly in my ears for two weeks and she hasn't failed to deliver.

Her stories, perspectives, tried and tested techniques have all contributed to cemented nuggets of gold.

She has summarised and encapsulated the key points of leadership and leadership development that we need to refresh our approach to bringing the best out in others.

A must read

Holly Ransom’s book is a must read. I especially enjoyed the chapters on personal leadership and fantastic stories from an eclectic selection of leaders. It’s full of fun facts and worth quoting stats, it’s personal and is told with great humour and energy.
