Forcing compliance is easy. Anyone can ‘make’ another perform a task. It will get done, but when and to what standard? Sustained high performance can only come from engagement with and commitment to the job in hand.

This book will introduce you to the art of compassionate leadership, an approach to management that gets out of people through the fulfilment of self-worth. It will show leaders how to give their teams a real sense of purpose and direction in order to motivate and inspire them to perform at a high level consistently.

To illustrate his message, author Manley Hopkinson draws on his background as a board member of companies including ATLAS Consortium and Hewlett Packard Defence UK, his career as an inspirational speaker and his adventure experiences as skipper in the BT Global Challenge (a round-the-world yacht race) and The Polar Race (an expedition style race to the Magnetic North Pole).

Manley is a leading voice in compassionate leadership.

This new and updated edition includes two topical chapters on resilience and remote leadership.
