After Dinner Speaker : Clive Woodward

Clive Woodward

Whether in the field of sport or business, the principles associated with building high performance teams are the same.

Leadership, teamship, partnership and attention to detail are the key components of the team building process.

Cultures may change from team to team and from company to company but the key ingredients for success remain consistent.

During his time with the England Rugby team, and with the backing of the RFU, he has established a series of high performance management systems incorporating players, coaches, technical, medical and administrative teams. These systems operate individually and collectively, guided by a series of winning behaviour's which ultimately provide the framework for their activities both on and off the field. It is the establishment, recognition and implementation of these key principles, which have enabled them to meet their twin objectives of wanting to build a happy, and more importantly, successful team.

Identifying your own winning behaviour's will equate to high performance, this is true whether you are managing a high profile international sports team or are responsible for a group of highly skilled businessmen and women. The concept and principles remain the same and we hope that his presentation will give you an insight into the tools and methods he has used since becoming England's first full time coach in 1997.

A final thought... winning is everyone's ultimate objective. It is however important to recognise that we must also be prepared for those times when this ultimate objective eludes us. Handling not winning is in some respects just as important as winning itself.

How you and your team react in adversity says much about both you as an individual and the spirit and togetherness that underpins your team.
