Paula is an inspirational and influential HR and people-focused leader, with a thoughtful and refreshing perspective on the world of work. Through her original and accessible concept of ‘vantage points,’ Paula is able to offer a reflective view of what it takes to be a great people-focused leader today. Now, more so than ever, leaders need to be authentic, humane and comfortable with their own and others’ vulnerability. Paula offers a clear and practical guide to getting there, showing that leadership is as much about ‘being’ as it is about ‘doing’.

KATIE JACOBS, Senior stakeholder lead at CIPD and HR/business journalist

No leader can see the whole picture. But every leader can get a richer picture if we see things from different vantage points. The best books offer simplicity and depth. Vantage Points delivers on both in abundance and throws in a dollop of practicality too. Any leader will find this a stimulating and practical book and one they will return to regularly.

MARK WITHERS, Founder and director of Mightywaters and author of Risky Business: Unlocking Unconscious Biases in Decisions
