Key Information

Forcing compliance is easy. Anyone can ‘make’ another do a task or a job. It will get done, but when, and to what standard? High performance and, more importantly, 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 – the art of getting the best for and 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.

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).

A personal and most readable introduction to the fundamentals of good leadership, enlivened by the author’s rich and varied experience.

John Adair, Academic & Author

I have read Manley’s book ‘Compassionate Leadership’ and found it to be a masterful business book.

Liam Kelly, Teleflex

He (Manley) is a firm proponent of the idea that leadership is less about telling people what they need to do than about forming a relationship with them so that they motivate themselves to do what is required.


I’ve just finished reading Compassionate Leadership, and I wanted to thank-you for writing it.

Really enjoying the book! Very thought provoking and challenging. Love the exercises that come with each chapter.

In his book and as a speaker Manley brings personal experience, academic study and humour to enable others to learn.
