What makes a winning organisation and team?
Simply said not easily done!
Leadership – On and off the field. The example. Replicating self.
Vision – clear & articulated in an inspiring way. Great leaders get others to do what they want them to, because they want to do it. The guide post.
Mission focused – outcomes based but processed driven (even the enemy has a say-so in the outcome)
Love – for the game, the mission, teammates. Mission First, Teammates Second, I am Third
Character – because we don’t always win but win or lose, be professional. Character matters
Humility – Always trying to improve oneself, their game and teammates. Either you are humble, or you are about to be (pittsburgh pirates saying). Competing with self to be better.
Communication – Listening. How we interact and express the wins, challenges and failures. Learning from victories and defeats – learning loop. Move, shoot, communicate, assess.
Purpose – the team’s, the individual leads to Swing
Swing – Rowing term that refers to an elusive sensation of near-perfection; a state in which all rowers in the boat are seemingly in a symphony of harmonic motion, with no wasted energy. Similar in meaning to the phrase “in the zone” in other sports. http://rowtampa.com/rowing-terms/

My purpose is to inspire Kaizen in others, so they can maximise their performance in any endeavour.
I love it when the light bulb goes on! Helping others makes me a better person.
Being an impactful coach/leader/teacher/mentor is a process that can be taught, learned and implemented into daily life – Being a better person makes you a better coach/leader/teacher/mentor. To include me.
