This third report in our series on leadership, produced in a collaboration between the CIPD and the University of Bath, looks at how followers experience trustworthy senior leaders within some of the UK’s major corporations and institutions. The focus of the report is on the experience of their colleagues, their teams and the bosses who work alongside senior leaders. This is viewed through practice, process, actions and behaviours.

"One of the potential challenges our research brought up is the ability of leaders to develop sustainable
relationships with their followers in a world of work that is increasingly mobile and international."
