The What, Why and How of being a leader

The following resources are based on a literature report on leadership in physiotherapy .

They have been produced by Dr Heather A. Thornton, University of Hertfordshire for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP).

After each section there are questions for you to reflect on your own leadership and actions you might want to take.

The CSP commissioned a report from the University of Hertfordshire which explored current thinking on leadership in physiotherapy based on published literature, interviews with physiotherapy leaders and the results of a CSP survey on leadership views. The full report can be accessed below:
