Today’s guest is inspired by seeing others harness what makes them extraordinary as human beings.

He teaches people how to navigate the challenge of leadership. He draws on his 25-year career in the Royal Air Force and over 14 years of partnering with businesses around the world. He has worked in a wide range of sectors including aviation, oil & gas, construction, mining, banking, television, film, and media.

Today he is a keynote speaker and facilitator presenting around the world and virtually. He co-authored his first book “Find Your Why” with Simon Sinek and David Mead. Published in September 2017, it has been translated into more than 25 languages and has sold over 420,000 copies. He was a founding Igniter at Simon Sinek Inc. working with Simon for over seven years.

His latest book, “Leading From The Jumpseat: How to Create Extraordinary Opportunities by Handing Over Control,” delivers the message that leadership is about lifting people up and giving them the space they need so that, when the time is right, they can take the lead.

Please join me in welcoming Peter Docker.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is the ability to lift up others so when the time is right, they can take the lead.”
  • being selected as an officer in the Royal Air Force.
  • specific examples of times leaders need to give up control.
  • the difference between leading from a place of love rather than a place of fear.
  • the people in his early life that helped to shape him to be the man he is today.
  • his initial plans to go to university prior to joining the Royal Air Force.
  • the values he holds deeply important in his life.
  • how he began working with Simon Sinek.
  • the importance of having trust in others.
  • how he supports and nurtures the outer levels of his networks.
  • the relationship between feeling a sense of belonging and innovation.
