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.
