    Leadership Matters

    7 skills of very successful leaders

    Authors David Pich and Ann Messenger together with a team of experts, believe that you need to master 7 skills to become a successful leader in today’s complex and challenging organisations. The skills are:

    1.         Setting strategy          

    2.         Defining culture

    3.         Leading people

    4.         Making decisions

    5.         Ethical leadership

    6.         Inclusion matters

    7.      Networking is working


    They researched locally and globally to find out why and how these 7 skills are so important.


    As part of this research, David Pich interviewed several inspiring global leaders about their unique perspectives on the 7 skills. They included human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Kailash Satyarthi, Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce AC, Godrej Group Chair, Adi Godrej and Gloria Ai, China’s leading independent business host, whose daily talk show that streams to multiple ‘new media’ channels has a potential reach of more than 10 million.

    These leaders’ invaluable insights into leadership are shared in this book, which concludes that leadership really does matter.
