Andy Johnson, a former soldier and Sandhurst instructor turned author, trainer and entrepreneur, presents the first in his series of leadership, management and operational delivery pamphlets on behalf of From The Front Consultancy Ltd. He articulates his own brand of up-front, no nonsense yet humane leadership in a short, readable and useful ‘get you started’ guide for those who are new to leadership positions or who aspire to hold one. Having served in all manner of leadership environments from the battlefield to the boardroom, Andy will inspire you to get out there and get stuck in because, as he rightly states, leadership is a people business. You can study all the theory you want, but eventually you must test that theory in the real world. Andy has strong opinions on the values and standards that are an essential part of every good leader’s make-up and believes that they have massive impact on an individual’s effectiveness when they finally become one of the ‘Captains of the Gate’.
