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.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 October 2021
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.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in leadership or simply seeking to be a better human being!
