The aim of Libri Books is to be the imprint of choice for authors and readers addressing issues in professional/organisational development and management. Specific categories include: ‘The Business of Higher Education’, ‘Health Policy and Medical Training’ and ‘Management Policy and Strategy’. Libri Books are written primarily for members of ‘communities of practice’ which include professionals, consultants and trainers, as well as researchers and academics.
This book stands out from the crowd in providing a fresh original perspective on the relatively under-explored area of a leader’s reputation. Reputation is a consequence of everything you say or do and no other tangible or intangible asset is worth as much as your reputation or has such a positive or detrimental impact on your career. Many studies reveal that we care more about what other people think about us than we do about what may have actually happened in reality, and yet there is so little written about the subject. This book gets to grips with how our reputation is formed in the real world and what really makes the difference in winning a good reputation and in losing a good reputation.
The book uncovers the impact of the ‘secret vocabulary’ used in organizations to shape reputations, and offers tips and advice about how to take control and manage your reputation, and how to develop a personal brand to shape your future career direction with integrity and authenticity.
