Welcome
The premise of this book is that a leader’s behaviour or rather, the quality of their leadership delivery, drives the performance of the group or business for which they are accountable. This is irrespective of the size or scope of the leadership challenge. It applies to the Chairman or Chief Executive of a multinational corporation, the Head of a School or the supervisor of retail check-out staff. As such, it should be read by anyone with a responsibility for improving organisational performance.

The contents of the book are based upon over 25 years’ of extensive research and consultancy application across sectors, in a truly international context and at all phases of the economic cycle. ‘It’s Behaviour, Stupid!’ describes the fundamental frameworks that Steve Glowinkowski has developed over this time and includes a wide range of practical case studies where the methodologies have been applied and have resulted in significant organisational performance improvements.

Above all ‘It’s Behaviour, Stupid!’ has been written in a way that presents a robust and valid picture of leadership in a highly practical, easy-to-read format.
