Product description

Review

"Leaders know that the secret to success is giving control to the team, safely, consistently, and boldly. In Leading from the Jumpseat, former RAF pilot Peter Docker shows us how to do this." David Marquet, Author of Fortune's #1 Best Business Book of the Year, Turn the Ship Around and Founder of Intent Based Leadership;"Trust and empower your people so they can lead. Easier said than done. This book is an invaluable guide on how to do that." Nick Beighton, CEO, ASOS;"An exciting ride - start to finish! Peter's book is filled with stories that challenge you to consider the legacy you are leaving behind. We know we NEED to give up control, the question is how? This book has the answers you've been waiting for." Kristen Hadeed, Author of Permission to Screw Up;"Leading From The Jumpseat makes a compelling case for today's biggest leadership challenge: to lead with integrity. Peter Docker shares what it takes for individuals and organizations to accomplish extraordinary things - not just at 30,000 ft, but in every working environment. Leading From The Jumpseat is a great read: it offers a rich collection of real-world examples for human-centric leadership." Ralf Specht, Founder and former CEO of Spark44 and author of Building Corporate Soul; "Peter's real skill is to express, in simple terms and by examples, those ideas and principles that immediately chime with the reader. By drawing on dramatic examples of airborne emergencies, as well as more mundane and everyday situations, he guides us in applying them to our own lives." Lieutenant General Sir James Dutton KCB CBE, former Governor of Gibraltar, & Regional President for Bechtel; "This is a wonderful, rich and powerful leadership resource, full of compelling stories that really bring the concepts to life. I loved it, started stealing ideas immediately and am recommending it to all my colleagues." Susie Scott, Corporate Safety Director, Major US Airline;"If life were a 1940s black and white movie, just a couple of pages into Peter Docker's 'Leading From the Jumpseat', I'd have buzzed through to my PA saying, "Hey - hold my calls - I'm busy." Once I started reading, I kept going. Peter's a natural storyteller and he uses those stories to make point after point that you'll be able to use if you do anything at all that involves leading people. It's an absolute belter of a book." Mark McArthur-Christie, Writer and Managing Director at Rubuss; "Leading from the Jumpseat is such a warm and thought provoking read. The stories and concepts that Peter uses to explain Jumpseat Leadership are so positive and uplifting. I found myself reflecting back to situations where I have been lifted up, how that made me feel and how I might do the same for others. It is clear from the stories Peter tells the importance of lifting others up and the lasting impression that positive actions leave on those you are supporting. One of the main messages I took away was that, just because I am not a CEO it doesn't matter - leadership is available to everyone at every level, in every situation." Alexandra Cox, Events Manager, Pembroke College, University of Oxford; --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Peter Docker is passionate about enabling people to unlock their natural talents. A international keynote speaker, he teaches leadership that is focused on commitment and human connection. This approach harnesses the collective wisdom of teams to generate extraordinary outcomes. He illustrates his insights by drawing on examples from his previous industry, flying, and military careers to explain powerful concepts that can be applied in any business. Peter worked with Simon Sinek for over 7 years and was one of the founding 'Igniters' on Simon's team. He took his years of practical experience to co-author Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team, with Simon and David Mead. Published in September 2017, it has been translated into more than 25 languages and has sold over 420,000 copies. In December 2019, Peter stepped away from Simon's team to focus on sharing his wider insights into how organisations thrive. His new book, Leading From The Jumpseat: How to Create Extraordinary Opportunities by Handing Over Control, will be published in October 2021. A trained leadership consultant and executive coach, Peter's commercial and industry experience has been at the most senior levels in sectors including oil & gas, construction, mining, pharmaceuticals, banking, television, film, media, print, hospitality, manufacturing and services - across 92 countries. His clients include Google, GE, Four Seasons Hotels, Accenture, American Express, ASOS, EY, NBC Universal and over 100 more. Peter served for 25 years as a Royal Air Force senior officer, has been a Force Commander during combat flying operations and has seen service across the globe. His career has spanned from professional pilot, to leading an aviation training and standards organisation, teaching postgraduates at the UK's Defence College, to flying the British prime minister around the world. Peter has also led multibillion-dollar international procurement projects and served as a crisis manager and former international negotiator for the UK government. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Peter Docker was born in Sutton Coldfield, England in 1963. His first book, 'Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team', co-authored with Simon Sinek and David Mead, was published in September 2017. Peter gets up every day inspired to enable people to be extraordinary so that they can do extraordinary things. Collaborating with Simon Sinek for over 7 years, he was a founding Igniter and Implementation Specialist on the Start With Why team, teaching leaders and companies how to use the concept of Why.

Peter's latest book, 'Leading from The Jumpseat: How to Create Extraordinary Opportunities by Handing Over Control', was published in October 2021.

Peter's commercial and industry experience has been at the most senior levels in sectors including oil & gas, construction, mining, pharmaceuticals, banking, television, film, media, manufacturing and services - across more than 90 countries. His career has spanned professional pilot; leading an aviation training and standards organisation; teaching post-graduates at an international college; and running multi-billion dollar procurement projects. A former Royal Air Force senior officer, he has been a Force Commander during combat flying operations and has seen service across the world. He is a seasoned crisis manager, a former international negotiator for the UK Government and executive coach.

A keynote speaker and facilitator, Peter presents around the world offering workshops and bespoke leadership programmes. He draws from his life experiences that range from being the pilot faced with crash landing a passenger jet with 140 people on board; being 'hunted' in the Borneo jungle while trying to survive; and many other leadership situations in which, at the time, he felt largely out of his depth.

In his new book, Leading from the Jumpseat, Peter has made available to everyone some quite advanced leadership principles and practices, and he brings them to life through his personal journey and compelling stories. Through each chapter’s ‘Consider this section’, the reader is prompted to reflect on their learnings and to apply these to their lives now.
