‘The Nine Types of Leader’

ENGINE MHP was delighted to host a private round-table breakfast discussion with author and business journalist James Ashton, to explore the lessons from his new book The Nine Types of Leader: How the Leaders of Tomorrow Can Learn from The Leaders of Today.

Drawing on his experience as City Editor at The Sunday Times, The Independent, and London Evening Standard, as well as the book’s case studies and interviews with some of the world’s most successful business leaders, James discussed how to harness the strengths and weaknesses of different management styles, as well as examining what makes great leaders tick, what it takes to be credible, and the things that they’d do differently if they had to do it all again.

Some highlights from our conversation, chaired by ENGINE MHP’s Head of Capital Markets, Oliver Hughes, are below:
