As the 2015-2016 football season got under way, the football fans among us here at the Leicester-based British Psychological Society were not optimistic about our local club's chances. Having narrowly avoided relegation the owners had turned to Claudio Ranieri as manager, an appointment widely greeted as 'uninspired' and a 'huge punt'. The bookies duly installed them as a 5000-1 shot for the title.

Even if you hate football, you may be aware of what happened next. The story transcends the sport, and I can attest to a very special atmosphere in the ground and wider city this season. This month's cover feature considers Ranieri as an embodiment of the 'new psychology of leadership', which also informs the second of our pull-out guides (kindly sponsored by Goldsmiths Institute of Management Studies).

In other news, our Research Digest - which continues to lead the way in terms of a huge and international following on its blog - joins us with an app for iOS and Android. Download for free, and help us to spread the news.
