Peter Docker on Leading from the Jumpseat

Peter Docker

Peter Docker is a co-author of Find Your Why (global sales of over 420,000), and previously a founding Igniter at Simon Sinek Inc. His new book is called Leading from the Jumpseat: How to Create Extraordinary Opportunities by Handing Over Control, now available around the world.

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. The question is, how do we do that effectively? It’s not easy to give up control, especially when being in control has been a central part of our lives.

Peter’s book Leading from the Jumpseat enables us to embrace this inevitability. Peter believes that everyone is capable of accomplishing extraordinary things. He and I had a deep conversation about his book, what it’s like to work with Simon Sinek, and when he got his call to leadership.

You will walk away with a better understanding of why giving up control and leading from the jumpseat can be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life.
