"It is an excellent concept and will make a significant contribution to the understanding of leadership. A combination of a theoretical discussion and a personal memoir strikes me as a great formula."

General Sir Richard Dannatt

 

"The author tackles an aspect of leadership which is often avoided - either because it is too difficult to capture or is ignored as irrelevant.  On the contrary, unless a leader loves those he leads then inspiration and motivation become elusive.  I commend this book."

 Major General John Stokoe

Vice President/Managing Director BT National Government Division

 

"An essential book for business leaders with pragmatic tips and wise advice from powerful stories."

Deanna Oppenheimer
CEO Barclays Retail Bank

  

"Deeply moving, inspiring, and highly relevant for today’s global leaders needing to find new ways to gain greater performance and insight in such challenging times."

Katherine  Tulpa
CEO Association for Coaching

  

"This message would be bold enough coming from the life of a leadership developer, an executive coach, a builder of corporate teams. Jonathan is all of these. But this message is profound coming also from a military officer, decorated for his leadership brilliance and his success in the organisation that hardly anyone associates with the softer people skills."

Nancy Kline

President & Founder of Time to Think Inc.
 

"In writing this book, Jonathan Perks has unequivocally created his magnum opus in the field of leadership. Inspiring Leadership represents an important source of information that must be read, studied and applied. As such, it will hopefully serve as an invaluable resource for those who work in any aspect of executive coaching and leadership development."

Reuven Bar-On

Author of EQ-i and co-editor of The Handbook of Emotional Intelligence and
Educating People to Be Emotionally Intelligent
 

"What Jonathan has to say about being a leader comes from his heart as well as his head. It is about what leaders need to 'be' as well as what they need to 'do'. That is what makes it so succulent and practically useful."

Oliver Johnston
 

"Anyone who follows his eight-point compass model which outlines the principal components of an inspiring leader will discover a model that helps them take control of their lives and, as Jonathan says, enable them to live their lives `on purpose."
