What defines a ‘leader’? Marcus Buckingham, Gallup Team Member and author of best-selling business titles: “You are a leader if, and only if, you are restless for change, impatient for progress and deeply dissatisfied with the status quo”.  These are the leadership traits that are frequently lacking in the voluntary sector and should be encouraged if we want to make a real difference for the benefit of our society.
Marcus has written a variety of titles and reviews of his book ‘Stand Out’ suggests that it is written in a ‘conversational’ style and is an approachable read; challenges us all to see ourselves as others see us and how to work with our strengths to really make a difference.
