A Financial Times Business Book of the Month
Take control of your life and create space to succeed

We're used to feeling stressed, rushed and overwhelmed. At work and at home there are endless calls on our attention and time. We're constantly playing catch-up. But if we want to perform optimally, and reach our full potential, we must learn to pause and create space in even the busiest day.

Informed by over a decade of hands-on experience at the most senior levels of business, this book shows how to push back against the tide and create space in your life to think, relate and act on a deeper level. Learning to focus, manage time, and take control of your mental and physical space is the first step in developing and excelling in anything.

This book shows how to do just that, drawing on real-life examples and the best of both classical and cutting-edge psychological and behavioural thinking. Each chapter contains models, tools and tips that have been used effectively in some of the world's biggest organisations, and which will allow you to set your strategy, raise your productivity and create meaningful change for lasting success.

Review:

This is a stimulating, thought provoking and valuable guide for those who are serious about "being the best they can be". It blends research, considered insights and storytelling to offer a very practical framework to take control and make space for reflection, learning, possibilities and being. It will act as a useful "coach" in all aspects of one's life and at all stages in one's career. (Valerie Scoular, former Group HR Director at Barclays, British Airways and Dentsu Aegis Network)

What I most like about Create Space are the 12 stories at the heart of the book. They bring to life the ideas within it in an engaging and entertaining way. Whether you are at the start of your career, enjoying your first management responsibilities, or sitting in the C-suite, this book has lots to offer. I highly recommend it. (Henry Birch, Chief Executive of the Rank Group plc)

Creating Space is coming at the right time. Leaders today are always on, and operating in environments which are rapidly changing. So figuring out how to get the space to think, learn, decide and grow is a very high leverage piece of help. (Austin Lally, Group CEO Verisure)

This book sets out in a very well researched, practical way how you can create the physical and mental space to make better decisions, build deeper professional relationships and get the things that really matter done. Whether you work in business, the public sector or the third sector, if you aspire to master the art and science of leadership, this is a great guide. (Gavyn Davies, Chairman Fulcrum Asset Management and former Chairman of the BBC)

No matter how busy you think you are, find the time to read this book. Packed with far-reaching insights and simple steps for wresting back control of your diary and your career, Create Space is a must-read for thoughtful leaders looking to take their performance - and the performance of their teams - to the next level. (Sarah Wood, Founder and Non-Exec Chair, Unruly.com (part of News Corp))

Derek Draper will do something for you that no politician can; he will help you take back control (Robert Peston, ITV Political Editor (former BBC Business Editor))

I'm moderately successful but permanently playing catch-up. I'm late for everything. I struggle to prioritize, and even to catch my breath. I juggle with only mixed results. I'm glad I stepped back and created enough space to read Derek Draper's original, clever, practical book. Space to think is the most basic necessity. Draper has shown me, for the first time, where I can find it. (Euan Rellie, Co-founder and Senior MD, BDA (Business Development Asia))

I see loads of business books and they can often be one idea stretched out to fill a book and a little bit too "ivory tower". This book's different. Each chapter takes a vital skill and digs deep to really understand it, through very life-like and funny stories. There's then a tonne of practical suggestions that will resonate with anyone who works in business. If you're serious about your career grab this now and get reading. (Ian King, Business Editor, Sky News)

This new book from Derek Draper looks fascinating - on a theme which I'm sure all of us struggle with and could use some advice on. (James Crabtree, author The Billionaire Raj)
