Become a courageous leader and learn how to take risks, defy limitations and inspire the extraordinary

In Leadership Matters, celebrated humanitarian Peter Baines OAM shares remarkable stories and unique insights about leadership in challenging times. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience in leading others through crises and disasters, Peter demonstrates how great leaders rise above adversity. He unpacks how leadership skills such as courage, compassion, and integrity are essential for finding a way forward and triumphing against the odds.

Leadership Matters shares the leadership lessons that have emerged from Peter’s decades of work in international counterterrorism and disaster response. In particular, it reveals how the devastating aftermath of Thailand’s Boxing Day Tsunami has shaped Peter’s understanding of what it means to be a true leader. You’ll learn how Peter founded a multi-million-dollar charity to help those he met along the way. And you’ll learn the principles that have guided him in the decades since that transformative event: how to lead and inspire others as you work together to achieve the extraordinary.

Leadership Matters will inspire you to:

  • Stop making excuses and take action
  • Find the unique solutions that are required by unique challenges
  • Motivate your team by being present and fostering integrity
  • Find courage for difficult decisions and compassion for hard conversations

Leadership Matters: Stories and Insights for Leaders, Achievers and Visionaries shows how great leaders can find their purpose and make a real, vital impact on the world around them.
