Magazine: Friday, 26 June 2020

In these unprecedented times, effective leadership is essential – not only from those at the top of the hierarchical pyramid, but also from middle managers and team leaders. The latest edition of RSM Discovery magazine has just been published under the editorship of the Erasmus Centre for Leadership and is entirely devoted to exploring just some of the many facets of leadership.

Individual CEOs and presidents are leaders, but so are middle managers and team members. And they deal with a lot of issues concerning decisionmaking, motivation, self-regulation, organisational design, team dynamics, and politics, to name just a few areas. This edition of RSM Discovery magazine embodies this diversity in leadership.
