The event will focus on a range of topics around leadership challenges for the public sector, including shared and distributed leadership, the role of the middle managers and promoting staff engagement and encouraging followership, focusing on research findings from the bi-annual Workforce Development Survey.

Last month we spoke to Professor Maura Sheehan and Dr Kirsteen Grant from the International Centre for Management and Governance Research at Edinburgh Napier University, to seek their views on Leadership and Management.
