Leadership PQ has been shortlisted for this year’s Management Book of the Year prize which was announced on 19 November by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the British Library.
Valerie Wark (my co-author) and I are really excited and proud because this is our first book and because the subject is so important. We hope it will reach a wider readership now.
Ann Francke, CMI Chief Executive, said: “The Management Book of the Year exists to help managers find the brightest nuggets of ‘Management Gold’, and with this year’s shortlist we’ve hit a rich vein of writing focused on the big challenges that managers face day to day. Congratulations to all the authors.”
A record 160 books were entered into this year’s competition across five categories: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Practical Manager, The Commuter’s Read, the Management and Leadership Textbook, and a new category, Management Futures. The five categories winner and an overall winner will be announced at an awards evening at the British Library on 9 February 2015 – with the winning author taking home a £5,000 prize.
