The DNA of a Champion with Sir Clive Woodward

Clive will speak about the three characteristics that he believes all true Champions need to exhibit in order to build sustainable success with their teams. Using examples from his careers in business, rugby and the Olympics, Sir Clive will explain, what each of these characteristics are but also importantly how he coaches teams and individuals to perform better in each area to create champion performers.

Teachability: The ability to change and to always keep learning is a critical skill for any leader. Their willingness to learn and accumulate knowledge around their role and in particular how they
can continually improve on what they already have is key. New people become students easily. It’s maintaining that thirst for relentless learning the higher up you go in and organisations that can
often become more difficult.

Pressure: Leaders and teams aren’t born able to perform under pressure, but it can be taught or coached and it’s a vital skill if you’re going to become a champion in business or sport. Leaders
have to systematically work through every eventuality with their teams so that the team has already gone through the thought processes needed to overcome them. This reduces the chances of coming up against something unexpected in the real world, allowing the team to use their time effectively to prevent risks and to execute their strategies consistently.

Mindset: Winning cultures must have the commitment to win. It’s about being empowered and accountable and the attitude they display. Sir Clive believes that you need an obsession for your
work in order to stay focused on your goal, but that this obsession is more about having a passion for your subject and attention to detail than working crazy hours or sending emails at midnight.

Charting Success: 8 Steps to Navigating a Winning Team with Caspar Craven

But they embraced every moment of this momentous chapter of their lives. Five years of planning – the vision, the values, the practicalities, the realities, the excitement, the highs, the lows and the seemingly adventure-stopping obstacles – led to two wonderful years of living their dream – the magical and the scary; enjoying life and learning as a family.
