 “When picking up any reference book, the two usual objectives are either to learn something new that you didn’t know before, or to understand what you already know in a new light. Anton (‘Tony’) Doerig’s book ‘Leadership. Safe and Secure.’ achieves both. Anton is well known to global security and risk managers through his activities at professional institutions and his presentations at conferences across the world. Seeing his name on the Speakers’ Panel guarantees that there will be at least one event worth attending, as well as many hours trading stories, swapping experiences and generally sharing a feeling of common ground with someone who really, really knows his stuff.

‘Leadership. Safe and Secure.’ is an almost perfect book, full of stories, insights, experiences and lessons that will be applicable to anyone involved in any aspect of security and risk management – or in fact, management in any form. It’s nugget-size sections make it an easy pick up and read book – but less easy to put down. I first picked it up with the intention of looking through it for twenty minutes – and two hours later I was still turning pages. Anton’s voice comes through in every sentence, and if you have not been lucky enough to meet him in person, then reading this book is a worthwhile alternative until you do.”

Ralf Caviezel; Head of Safety and Security at Cantonal Hospital Grisons / Commander Fire Brigade of the City of Domat/Ems, Switzerland

“The author Anton Doerig impressively shows how leadership, management and safety & security should be combined in this book. It offers you the opportunity to expand your own leadership understanding and competencies as well as connecting and complementing them with exemplary and job-related experiences from safety, security, emergency and crisis management.

Strong executives and clear decisions are essential, not only in extraordinary situations and crisis situations, but also in the area of intervention forces such as the police, the paramedics and the fire brigade. Goals have to be defined, clearly communicated and consistently implemented. Strong executives take their respon- sibilities seriously and are thus distinguished to their employees.

In the past, I have had the privilege of engaging the services of Anton Doerig sev- eral times. As an expert and advisor, he always knows how to respond to the needs of his clients and support them successfully in upcoming challenges. He impressively demonstrates the high practical relevance. Although his statements are sometimes provocative, they are also inspiring for reflection.

This book is a must for anyone committed to an innovative leadership style.”

“I really enjoyed reading this book. It is very easy to follow and connects manage- ment and leadership theories with the author’s personal experiences . . . and how those experiences helped him develop into an effective leader. He very eloquently describes the differences between a manager and a leader and that both types are needed in organizations. Leadership styles can be different depending on a per- sons’ personality, but the basic principles stay the same. A very important part of his message is that successful leaders lead with their head and their heart. They provide a healthy/positive work environment for their employees. Good leaders are not afraid to admit their mistakes and learn from them. Anyone who reads this book will find value in the authors words of wisdom, antidotes and stories. I highly recommend it!”

Rosi Milligan-Taweel, CEO / Owner MANDUSA kommunikationsmedium (Communications Agency and Learning Center), former Airport Security Executive and Intelligence Officer, Germany

“While editing this book, I realized once more that of all the literature out there, most of it – with a few exceptions – is written by theorists who lack practical experi- ence. This book connects theory with practice and bridges the subject of Safety and Security to and with all of our lives, be it personal or business / work. . . . But it is also much more than that. The author describes the status of safety & security in our lives today and in most companies, making us aware of its necessity. He does this in a very authentic way and shares his personal life experiences to underline his message. A big part of his message is also how we treat each other no matter what position you hold and that it is important to be human as well as a leader or manager, boss or co-worker. He says what everyone knows and sees but is just now starting to be talked about: that profit may be important but that there has to be a certain balance there. As entrepreneurs you have a responsibility for the people who

work with and for you, that includes physical and mental well-being. Very authen- tic, credible, down-to earth and yes . . . in parts provoking. Anyone who reads this will take something useful, positive, perhaps even enlightening out of this.”

Comment on the book #5

Dan Yaross, MSM, CPP, CHPA; Director of Security at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, USA

“The topic of ‘Leadership’ can either be described with a simple definition or rep- resent a highly complex, lengthy development process. However, in my opinion, developing one’s leadership style is a very personal journey that one travels through several years of work and life experience.

Mr. Doerig’s approach in presenting the topic in an operational manner versus a leadership theory/model approach is very effective. His life/work experiences that he shared in the book as “Practical Examples”, very effectively drove home the meaning of the material that just preceded them. Additionally, his “Tips” sections further reinforce each section’s theme and take-aways.

The book would be very useful to many different working populations as sug- gested in the introduction. Regardless, if the reader is a working leader with decades of experience or a young professional just joining the workforce, everyone will be able to gain new or refreshed leadership information.

Well done, Anton!”
