- Bessi Graham Co-Founder/CEO of The Difference Incubator

- Harvey Collins, Non-executive Director Navitas Limited and Save the Children

"The democratising of leadership will create the change we want to see in our institutions and communities. Rethinking Leadership is an outstanding overview of the contemporary leadership which will enable organisations to take positive steps into this future."
-Doug Taylor, Director Uniting NSW/ACT, Board Member of The Australian Centre for Social Innovation

"Rethinking Leadership is a comprehensive primer for all the important change and leadership theories as well as a tool for connecting oneself to the challenges we face. Most importantly, it is grounded in the idea that leadership is always about a real contribution to the world."

"Not here a shopping-list template. Not here the alpha-leader who rallies a tribe by force of will. Not here the myth of rescue, or the secret sauce for success. Rethinking Leadership starts at a different place altogether: the authenticity, vulnerability and receptivity to growth that brings people together on a journey to real change. Here, above all, a call to participate."
- Steve Collis, workplace & learning environment strategist

"Our school used Rethinking Leadership to transform a top down hierarchical model into something that could meet the challenges of contemporary education.
Peter, Naomi and Sophie helped us hold our nerve in the face of uncertainty, discover our strengths and reshape our culture. Everyone wants to work in an organisation where positive culture is embedded at every level and there is immense value in these pages for achieving it."
- Janelle Ford, Deputy Principal Claremont College
