Leading beautifully - a tribute to Prof. Donna Ladkin as she moves on from her post at Cranfield School of Management
One of the many things I learned while studying for my doctorate at Cranfield was that Donna Ladkin is a really inspirational thinker, writer and teacher.
Her academic work is very well respected in the area of Leadership and Ethics; and prizes must go for the name of one of her papers in a high-ranking journal - Leading Beautifully - where she shares many examples from her research of people who someone have the ability to capture the attention and imagination of people and lead them to great performance.

Not only does Donna research and write about such people - she is a living example of it and a great inspiration to me as a leader of change, and I'm sure to many others who she has touched.
The University of Plymouth will be a better place next term with Donna working for them.
