Around Leadership(en)

Bridging the scientist-practitioner gap

    After years of intensive literature review, Patrick Vermeren has astonishingly managed to bring a very ambitious project to a successful conclusion. Few academics can resist the pressure to publish and therefore rarely succeed outside their ivory towers. Conversely, few consultants take the time to delve into the scientific literature for new developments. Consequently, when they emerge from their training, academics and consultants are each in their own way ‘unworldly. ’ With this book, consultant Patrick Vermeren builds the much-needed bridge between these two worlds and dares to question both himself and the scientific literature while warning against confirmation bias. In a smooth, highly entertaining, and scientifically sound manner, Patrick Vermeren communicates knowledge through this book that will excite both consultants and academics. What is a good leadership style? How do executives key in on employee motivation? These are the central questions in the book that will no doubt be a source of inspiration for managers who want to optimise their leadership style. Patrick Vermeren is an HR professional who is fully committed to evidence-based HR. He specializes in leadership development, individual coaching, and group facilitation. Patrick Vermeren started his career as an executive in the banking and automotive industries. He developed a passion for learning and science, with particular interest in psychology, behavioural biology, and neurobiology. He is very committed to the balance between the interests of business and the well-being of employees. In addition to reviewing various theories of leadership and integrating them with the Leadership Circumplex, this book provides practical advice. Based on the clear vision that reliable knowledge should be shared as much as possible, he published (in Dutch) De HRBallon: 10 Populaire Praktijken Doorprikt (The HR Balloon: 10 Popular Practices Punctured; third revised edition 2009), Anders Leiden (Leading Differently; 2009), and Rond Communicatie: De Mens als Social Dier (Around Communication: Man as a Social Animal; 2013).
