Real Leaders for the Real World

By Karen Meager and John McLachlan

As a whole, people tend to think that leadership is a mysterious arena, where only the strong, special and fearless people live and there are hundreds of leadership books that support this theory.

However, Real Leaders for the Real World (£12.99, Panoma Press), written by Karen Meager and John McLachlan, provides a pragmatic, practical development approach for people who are already leaders and want to lead in an authentic way, become more successful and do all of this with ease and grace.

Real Leaders for the Real World comes from Karen and John’s work at Monkey Puzzle Training and Consultancy, a leading provider of leadership development in the UK.

They specialise in bringing together a deep level of practical applied psychology knowledge with real business experience to resolve business problems and help generate opportunities to achieve long-term results for the organisation.

Many of us doubt ourselves and find communicating with others difficult. The aim of this book is to show the reader exactly how to overcome this and become a ‘real leader’.

Karen Meager, who has previously worked in the fund management industry says: “We are looking to inspire people who do not see themselves as natural leaders, either because of their own self-doubt, or because they look at what they think a leader is, or the common perception of leadership as something only chosen for the few.”

Karen and John undertook research with over 60 leaders from all walks of life and this book presents the key factors for leaders’ success. By undertaking this in-depth research, they reveal how to become a leader with no magic formulas and no need to be something you’re not.

John McLachlan, a former chartered accountant explains: “We will show you how you can develop your own style as a leader, live the life you want to live and use your skills and abilities for good.”

Their philosophy is that it is possible to run a business that is both highly successful and healthy. Businesses can achieve this by understanding what is really going on in the dynamics of their organisation and taking steps to address this both in the environment and the leadership team. This is often easier to achieve than expected.

For anybody running a multi-million pound business, or someone wanting to lead their family in a nurturing way, Real Leaders for the Real World will help to identify the areas of self-development to be the best leader possible and an inspiration for others to follow.

The book has been nominated for the CMI Management Book of the Year, the Small Business Book Awards and it is a finalist in the International Book Awards. Real Leaders for the Real World (£12.99) by Karen Meager and John McLachlan is published by Panoma Press.
