"Thanks Albie, I heartily recommend the kets de Vries book and the notion that 'leaders are in the business of energy management' is underpinning my thesis, so it was a happy day when I was able to trace this back to MPF!!"

I have just completed my PhD investigating Leadership Literacies for the Knowledge Era and testing to see whether they have yet been observed in higher education theory and practice. MPF's work was foundational to my study.
