Accidental Leadership charts the extraordinary career of Paul Mooney, who progressed through a range of jobs from messenger to apprentice butcher, eventually becoming President of the National College of Ireland. Along the way he also worked as a laundry manager, in HR positions with General Electric and Sterling Drug in Ireland and Asia, and ran a successful business consultancy in Ireland for over fifteen years.

Based on this diverse career experience, Mooney has developed a powerful leadership model, illustrated with real life examples of leadership in action. The key questions posed are brought to life with examples of best (and worst) practices which Mooney witnessed while working with a range of top Irish and international leaders. Written in an engaging and witty style, Accidental Leadership brings the key concepts of leadership to life.
