�Leadership and vision' is the subject of Chapter 3 and Rogers and Reynolds look at how managers can encourage leadership from other people, whether in their team, the organisation or in collaborative work with different agencies. They explore leadership style, and the extent to which managers can and should adapt their personal style to the differing needs of situations and people. Frontline managers may not always feel that they have much opportunity to influence the grander vision and strategy of their organisation. Rogers and Reynolds argue that they none the less play a role in the vision sequence even at the level of putting it into practice and looking for better ways of doing things. Practice-led managers relay their experience from the front line back to more senior management so that they can contribute to strategic planning.
