Welcome to Leadership Online: A Directory of Resources
This directory of leadership and management development elearning and online resources will be of interest and value to leaders and managers everywhere, especially in the NHS and the public sector in the UK. It is an educational resource and started life as a resource for leaders and managers within the NHS in the south of England, and has been developed extensively since. This is the eighth edition and it now gives details of about 1,000 weblinks, all of which have been tested recently. Old links that no longer work have been deleted and for some of those replacement links have found, and some completely new resources have also been added.
How to use these resources
Some people use these resources to help resolve a specific issue or tackle a problem at work, or may find it helpful as a stimulus or aid for self-development. Others have used the resources in conjunction with formal or informal development programmes. And for some, these resources can be helpful in mentoring or coaching, using the material either between or during sessions.
How to navigate your way round
The whole directory is in the form of a PDF ebook (below) which you can open or download. It can be printed off as a stand-alone document for ease of reference. But it is probably more useful if it is kept in the form of a PDF document on your computer or iPad or other tablet because all of the links are embedded, and when you click or tap on the links they will take you through directly to the web page or the resources you have selected.
The thirteen sections (listed at the bottom of this page) are also displayed individually on this website. If the sidebar showing the list of each of these is not showing up on your computer or device, just click or tap on the three-bar menu icon in the top left of your screen, and then click or tap on the section you want.
To search for something specific, click or tap on the search icon on the top right-hand side of your screen and type in what you are looking for.
