Why is it important for leaders to be authentic? Kate Cooper of the Institute of Leadership & Management explains
What does it take to be a good leader? In the world of politics, authenticity is proving to be a crucial issue, with the Brexit vote and the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, Donald Trump in the US and the rise of Marine Le Pen in France. New research from the Institute of Leadership & Management points to how crucial authenticity is in business too, but shows how many managers and leaders in UK firms are struggling to demonstrate it in the workplace.

Inflation hits 31 month high
Inflation has reached its highest rate for two-and-a-half years, largely due to the rising price of oil and the Brexit-fuelled fall in sterling. According to the Office for National Statistics, annual inflation as measured by the Consumer Prices Index reached 1.8% last month, up from a rate of 1.6% in December. It's the fourth consecutive month that the rate has risen and takes inflation to its highest since June 2014. Simon speaks to Pete Comley, inflation expert and author of Inflation Matters.
