This critical and reflexive book looks closely at the pivotal but demanding role that leadership and management play in promoting social work and social care. Focusing on the value that can be created when the relationships between the people delivering and those using public services are effective, the contributors explore the conditions required to nourish confidence, inspire self-esteem, unlock potential, and balance inequality. Aimed at both new and experienced social managers, it draws on a range of disciplines not typically found in social work and social-care studies, encouraging readers to broaden their examination of leadership.
