Driven Benevolence - Leadership Lessons from Olympic Serial Winning Coaches
Date: Thursday 11 May 2017
Time: 17:30 - 18:30
Venue: James Graham, Headingley Campus
Coaching athletes and teams to Olympic gold once is a huge achievement. Being successful consistently over 20 or 30 years is the prerogative of a very small and select group of coaches. So, what does it take to win repeatedly at the top level of sport? To find out, we interviewed 17 of these super-coaches (totaling over 150 gold medals between them) and their athletes. As it happens, above all the technical and tactical knowledge of the sport and the access to resources and technology, it turns out that their ruthless yet not heartless leadership style accounted for a lot of their success. We have called it Driven Benevolence.
