Director Forum - Professor Robin Stuart-Kotze

by Devonshire House Network


“Highly Effective Leadership is about Influence, not position or authority.”

…and there are six other Secrets – just like this one – in Professor Robin Stuart-Kotze’s amazing new book – his ninth.

This latest book from Robin Stuart-Kotze is about Behaviours, Influence, Personality, Motivation, Values, Culture, Productiveness, Pressure and Stress. 

What else is there?

We are delighted that Professor Dr Stuart-Kotze will be leading and managing this important Director Forum Event on 10.10.18  at a central London location – to be announced shortly – talking initially about his latest book but keen to generate an enthusiastic and interactive debate around the key issues raised in the book.

What makes a good leader? This is the critical question this book answers. Taking hard facts supported by research, it shows what highly effective leaders actually DO. It shows that it’s about behaviour, not personality; about influence not authority; about how to handle pressure and stress and not let it get on top of you; and about understanding what really motivates people. If you want to be a leader who makes a difference, you cannot afford NOT to read this book

About DHN Director Forums.

DHN Director Forums are aimed at Chairmen/women, Executive and Non-Executive Directors – and those who advise them. Director Forums are working, interactive and creative groups focused on key business issues – usually at 4.30pm to 6.30pm (this can vary slightly) followed by networking over a glass of wine. They are ideally suited to active executives looking for a short, sharp immersion in a specific topic, generally seen as topical, sensitive or tricky and in the company of others with similar interests. Director Forums, part of the Devonshire House Network, are also valuable networking events – and designed to fit unobtrusively into your daily work routines. http://www.devonshirehousenetwork.co.uk/dhn-director-forums/
