Everyone is capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. 

If you share this belief, then this book was written for you.

In business and in life, handing over the reins to others is inevitable. Everyone

will eventually leave their team, retire from being the CEO, or see their kids

leave home and lead their own lives. Leading from the Jumpseat enables us to

embrace this inevitability. Leading from the Jumpseat is a metaphor for how we

can choose to lead. It's about the journey we take so we can hand over control

to others, who are then equipped to continue forward.

Peter Docker, co-author of Find Your Why and formerly a founding Igniter at

Simon Sinek Inc., 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.

Drawing on his 25-year career in the Royal Air Force, and over 14 years spent

partnering with businesses around the world, Peter's goal is to inspire others to

Lead from the Jumpseat. Jumpseat Leadership is a way of interacting with

people that will enhance performance in any given situation - during normal

business, times of crisis, and life in general. Becoming a Jumpseat Leader

takes practice and this book is your practical guide to handing over control.
