10 Things Coaching Rugby Has Taught Me About Leading Teams
Play • 19 min

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.
