Jumpseat Leadership 

Jumpseat Leadership is an end result. It’s the point at which we have prepared our people, equipping them to lead in a way that they can embrace the unknown and make history-making outcomes possible. 

JUMPSEAT LEADERSHIP IS AN END RESULT.

Equipping People

The Jumpseat Leadership team specializes in partnering with organizations to make history-making outcomes possible. We do that by enabling people to connect to what is deeply important to them at a human level (their commitment), and use that energy to make a history-making outcome a possibility. We then show them how to lead in such a way so everyone in their organization can overcome the challenges they face, embrace the unknown, and turn possibility into reality.

Embracing the Unknown

Jumpseat Leadership starts with embracing the one inevitability of life: we will all, at some stage, hand over control. This mindset shift ensures we prepare our people so that, when the time is right, they can take the lead and carry forward those things that are deeply important to us. In the process, the practices of Jumpseat Leadership equip people to lead in a way that they can embrace the unknown and make history-making outcomes possible.

History Making

The capability of the Jumpseat Leadership team covers leadership, strategy, structure and succession (our term for people development), since all are required to deliver history-making outcomes.

BOOK

Leading from the Jumpseat 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. 

This is your practical guide to leading in such a way that everyone in an organization can overcome the challenges they face, embrace the unknown, and turn possibility into reality.

 

Co-author of Find Your Why and formerly a founding Igniter at Simon Sinek Inc., Peter draws on his 25-year career in the Royal Air Force, and over 17 years spent partnering with businesses around the world, to inspire others to Lead from the Jumpseat.

The work we do -
it all started with a book 

Leading from the Jumpseat: How to create extraordinary opportunities by handing over control

create the conditions where the capacity for leadership can grow

Equipping people at every level with the skills to lead. 

Jumpseat Leadership takes time and investment - it is not an overnight process. Our approach is to work at all levels in the organization. At the most senior level, we transfer the skills needed to enable managers to feel comfortable creating the space for others to step-up and lead, and gradually begin to take a step back. This creates the opportunity for the capacity for leadership to grow within the organization, with the benefit of those at the top being able to take on a more strategic role. At the same time, we support those more junior in the organization by equipping them with the skills to lead.

Bring the jumpseat leadership message to your team

The capability of the Jumpseat Leadership team covers leadership, strategy, structure & succession, since all are required to deliver history-making outcomes.

Our work includes one-to-one executive coaching, keynotes that inspire a mass shift in thinking, to stand-alone workshops, and comprehensive long-term partnerships.

 

Delivery can be for a small executive team, through to highly interactive sessions for up to 3000 people simultaneously – in person or, when needed, via video-conference or broadcast from professional TV studios in the UK.

 

We have delivered in over 90 countries, predominantly in English, but also using simultaneous or consecutive translation.

 

Whatever form of delivery our work takes, our aim is to build capability within the client organization, with an option to train and equip in-house facilitators to deliver Jumpseat Leadership development over the longer term.

HOW WE DELIVER THE JUMPSEAT leadership message

Jumpseat Leadership Logo

Our clients love to partner with us across the spectrum of keynotes to long-term consulting to create a culture of Jumpseat Leadership.  Leaders come to us when they are seeking to do something they have never done before, such as leading through exponential growth, or ensuring the legacy of what they have built gets passed to the next generation of leaders to carry forward.

Keynotes

In our fast paced 30, 45, 60 and 90 minute keynotes, Peter Docker, author of Leading from the Jumpseat, co-author of Find Your Why, and formerly a founding Igniter at Simon Sinek Inc., will take inspirational concepts from his book and turn them into practical application.​

From a few hundred to several thousand participants, our interactive keynotes have the power to create a shared experience at scale, shifting people’s perceptions of what’s possible, opening the door for thinking differently and leaving with the tools to begin applying Jumpseat Leadership in their day-to-day life.

 

Every keynote is tailored to the audience and is bespoke.

Workshops

Looking for more than a keynote or wonder what comes after?

 

Our standalone workshops answer that question. They are fast-paced and highly interactive, exploring how making a commitment to something we stand for can open up possibilities when dealing with the unknown; or how becoming comfortable with not knowing the answer can become our greatest strength.

 

Workshop participants will leave with practical ways to begin to bring the power of Jumpseat Leadership to their organization. The best part is we design the workshop with you so that your team can begin to apply what they have learned to the challenges you currently face.

Consulting

Every organization will face points of inflection – times when leadership has an even more critical role to play, such as exponential growth, significant change, or crisis. These moments have the potential to be history-making.

 

We partner with leaders to help them use the techniques of Jumpseat Leadership to embrace these opportunities and set the conditions so those who lead today and tomorrow may thrive.

 

Our focus is on:

  • Strategy,

  • Structure and

  • Succession

 

All 3 are required to deliver history-making outcomes.

Leadership Development

We work at all levels in the organization.

 

At the most senior level, we transfer the skills needed to enable managers to feel comfortable creating the space for others to step-up and lead, and then gradually begin to take a step back. This creates the opportunity for the capacity for leadership to grow within the organization, with the benefit of those at the top being able to take on a more strategic role. At the same time, we support those more junior in the organization by equipping them with the skills to lead.

 

Our programs include workshops, curated self-study, facilitator-led video-based courses, and daily practices to support leaders applying the techniques of Jumpseat Leadership in their everyday work environment.

PEOPLE WE HAVE WORKED WITH AND WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT THE WORK WE HAVE DONE TOGETHER

Relationship is the foundation of all we accomplish.

Our approach starts by engaging with you to build relationship with the challenges you face.
