10 Things Coaching Rugby Has Taught Me About Leading Teams
Show Notes

I've been coaching youth rugby for eight years now. In that time there have been (and still are) so many lessons that I have learnt. The interesting thing is, these lessons can be directly applied to leadership. In this episode, I dive into more detail on these lessons.

The lessons are:

  • Sometimes you need to work with what you’re given
  • Even top performers have bad days
  • Peer pressure counts for more than you think
  • Everybody has baggage
  • Commitment varies – not everyone is there because they want to be
  • Team members need to be engaged
  • It’s not always about talent
  • A team requires balance
  • Some like to lead, others are happy to follow
  • You can’t win without an aligned team

Listen in for the detail on these learnings.

In this episode I also talk about The Agile Career Podcast being recognised as one of the top 20 careers podcasts in the UK. I am truly honoured by this. Check out the link below to find out more and also to see some other great career-related podcasts that you can listen to.
