About Amanda Sinclair

Amanda Sinclair is an academic, consultant and researcher with particular expertise in the areas of leadership and ethics, organisational culture and change, gender and diversity.
At MBS, Amanda teaches leadership and change and management and ethics, amongst other subjects, in the MBA and EMBA programs.
Amanda's work has been widely published and her sometimes controversial conclusions have generated significant popular as well as academic debate. Her books, Trials at the Top and Doing Leadership Differently, argued that gender, sexuality and power have shaped and limited leadership in business. Both were read with interest across professional, academic and corporate circles. New Faces of Leadership (with Valerie Wilson) highlights how trust, openness and a moderate ego are emerging as critical capabilities in leading diverse workforces effectively. Her latest book, Leadership for the Disillusioned: Beyond myths and heroes to leading that liberates suggests leadership should be directed towards new purposes of promoting freedom and well-being.
