Leadership & Management Development

I am a writer, researcher and training consultant and this website contains information about my current books and where to buy them.

There are also a lot of additional resources and links to other websites for people learning to be better leaders and managers and the people who are responsible for their development – trainers, l&d professionals and others.

If you want to know more about my perspective on leadership and management development, please watch this short piece of video and then explore the site.

For debates about current leadership and management topics, go to my blog page.

Books by David Pardey

I currently have two books in print that are available to buy …

Introducing Leadership (2nd edition)

Introducing Leadership is a highly practical textbook which draws on robust research to present a clear picture of what leadership actually involves. It explores why leadership has become so important in recent years; the role leadership plays in achieving organisational success; the skills that effective leaders need; and the steps that anyone can take to become an effective leader.

Building and Leading Teams

In 2003 I was asked by the Institute of Leadership & Management to write Leading Teams; subsequently they gave up publishing and the book went out of print. Building and Leading Teams is a completely new book that fills the same space – reflecting all the best research and practice and aimed at anyone who is tasked with building and leading a team.

Other Services

Why not draw on my vast experience – here are the management services that I offer …

Commissioned Writing

I write and edit a range of materials for clients, particularly e-learning producers, across a range of business and management topics.

Recent projects have covered:

  • Customer service
  • Positive psychology
  • Communication
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making

I am happy to discuss any project, no matter how large or small.


For seven years I was Head of Research at the Institute of Leadership & Management, after some fifteen years of undertaking research projects for a variety of clients.

I can undertake small scale research projects (both qualitative and quantitative), undertake desk research (exploring existing research and data sources) or just advise you on your research needs.

Call me to discuss your project.

Training and Events

I have spoken at events on a number of topics, including some of my own original research:

  • Trust – What it is, why it matters and how to build it
  • Ethical leadership – Why ethical practice affects leadership effectiveness and organisational performance
  • Emotional intelligence – How emotions shape our thinking and relationships, and how to better recognise and manage your own and others’ emotional states

Contact me to discuss any project, no matter how large or small.
