Deep Leadership by Dr Nick Hawkes

About the Author

Deep Leadership is a book about how to lead at a profound level, a level that transforms organisations—and it is written by a leader.

Dr Nick Hawkes’ leadership career started when he was Head of School (senior prefect) in one of England’s oldest boarding schools. He went on to develop a leadership course for the Australian College of Theology, a national network of seventeen colleges. His practical experience was developed in both not-for-profit and commercial leadership positions—notably as a divisional state sales manager for a multi-national chemical company, where he led his team to record sales in a single year.

If asked about his most significant leadership experience, Dr Hawkes will cite a time when he started a youth group in the Western suburbs of Adelaide—an area where he was told it couldn’t be done. "It is projects like this," he says, "that are the true test of leadership. If you can attract a team of volunteers who don’t have to be with you, and motivate them to achieve a worthy goal—only then are you beginning to understand the craft of leadership."

Importantly, Dr Hawkes insists that growing the wellbeing of each member of a team is an essential and worthy leadership goal in itself.

This book presents the best of the latest research into leadership. It is practical and easy to read with flashes of humour.

Deep leadership is indispensable for anyone wanting to understand leadership in today’s world.
